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. Five years later, WiDS is a global movement that includes a number of worldwide initiatives:
On March 8, 2021, International Women’s Day, we hosted the inaugural 24-hour online Women in Data Science (WiDS) Worldwide conference. We followed the sun, bringing you speakers and sessions from around the world.
The next WiDS Worldwide Conference is in 2022, see more here: https://www.widsconference.org
