Follow us as we follow the sun around the world on International Women’s Day, celebrating women in data science and related fields.
WiDS Philadelphia is an independent event organized by Vanguard, Temple, Drexel, UPenn, SAP, Comcast, and others to coincide with the annual Global Women in Data Science Conference held at Stanford University and an estimated 150+ locations worldwide. The Global WiDS Conference aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field.
This one-day technical conference provides an opportunity to hear about the latest data science-related research and applications in a number of domains and connect with others in the field. The program will include technical talks, panel discussions, recruiting opportunities, and several networking breaks throughout the day and will bring together local academic leaders, industry professionals, and students. All genders are invited to attend WiDS regional events, which features outstanding women doing outstanding work.
Our vision is to foster a community of data scientists and supporters in Philadelphia from various backgrounds, both in industry and academia. We hope to create a space for data scientists and technical professionals to meet, where networking and knowledge sharing can flourish. We believe that this will help connect the community of technical professionals, promote women in data science, and support continuous learning.
