Description

The Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and support women in the field. This annual one-day technical conference provides an opportunity to hear about the latest data science-related research and applications in a broad set of domains. All genders are invited to participate in the conference, which features outstanding women doing outstanding work.

We are holding a WiDS Vancouver conference for UBC students and the general public to come learn more about current projects, and technologies that are being used in the field of data science, and what it is like being a woman working in Data Science. Attendees are invited to listen to speakers from the industry as well as academia speak about their experiences, advice on best practices and career transitions.
