Women in Data Science Maastricht
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.
We are happy to announce that there will be a Maastricht edition of WiDS on 5th March 2020 ! We have a line-up of fantastic speakers by Women doing Data Science (see Agenda below). To save your spot, please register before 28th Feburary!
WiDS Maastricht is an independent event organized by Amrapali Zaveri and Visara Urovi (Institute of Data Science, Maastricht University) to coincide with the annual Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference held at Stanford University and an estimated 150+ locations worldwide. All genders are invited to attend WiDS regional events, which features outstanding women doing outstanding work.
