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 one-day technical conference at Stanford in November 2015. Six years later, WiDS is a global movement that includes a number of worldwide initiatives:

  • A conference with 150+ regional events worldwide in more than 60 countries, reaching 100,000 participants annually online and in person.
  • A datathon, encouraging participants to hone their skills using a social impact challenge. 
  • A podcast series, featuring data science leaders from around the world talking about their work, their journeys, and lessons learned along the way
  • An education outreach program to encourage secondary school students to consider careers in data science, artificial intelligence (AI), and related fields.

On March 7, 2022, the next Women in Data Science (WiDS) Worldwide conference will launch in person at Stanford. WiDS Worldwide will feature keynote addresses, technical talks, panel discussions and networking with thought leaders around the world, from academia, industry, non-profit, and government.
