Event description

Description

We are pleased to invite you to the 2nd annual Women in Data Science conference in Stockholm! After last year's huge interest, we've secured a larger venue and are planning to make this year's event bigger, better and filled with exciting presentations, useful career advice and plenty of opportunities to meet and connect with other women in the field.

This event is created by female data scientists and features only women on stage. Presentations are intentionally fairly technical and aimed towards current or aspiring data scientists. However, participants of all genders and backgrounds are more than welcome to attend!

With enormous thanks to our sponsors: iZettle and Stockholm AI.
