About WiDS Worldwide
The Women in Data Science (WiDS) Worldwide 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 initiatives:
· A global conference with 150+ regional events worldwide in more than 60 countries, reaching 100,000 participants annually online and in person.
· A global 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 high school students to consider careers in data science, artificial intelligence (AI), and related fields.
· A workshops series featuring role model instructors providing one-topic skill building sessions on a variety of data science topics
