Women in Data Science (WiDS) at Stanford
The Women in Data Science (WiDS) initiative aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and support women in the field. WiDS started as a conference at Stanford in November 2015. Now, WiDS includes a global conference, with 150+ regional events worldwide; a datathon, encouraging participants to hone their skills; and a podcast, featuring leaders in the field talking about their work, and their journeys.

WiDS will be held at Stanford University, at 150+ regional events hosted by WiDS Ambassadors, and available via livestream. The 2019 program will feature fantastic speakers on a broad array of topics ranging from data ethics and privacy to cybersecurity to data visualization, and more.
