The International Program in Survey and Data Science is proud to collaborate with Stanford University to bring the Women in Data Science (WiDS) conference to Mannheim, Germany.
This one-day technical conference will feature an all-female line up of speakers from academia and industry to talk about the latest data science-related research in a number of domains, to learn how leading-edge companies are leveraging data science for success, and to connect with potential mentors, collaborators, and others in the field.
In Mannheim, the WiDS Conference is organized by the International Program in Survey and Data Science in cooperation with different partner organisations/projects.
The Women in Data Science (WiDS) initiative aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field.
WiDS started as a conference at Stanford in November 2015. Now, WiDS includes a global conference, with approximately 150+ regional events worldwide; a datathon, encouraging participants to hone their skills using a social impact challenge; and a podcast, featuring leaders in the field talking about their work, their journeys, and lessons learned.
