Please join us for a reception organized by the Women in Machine Learning (WiML) organization. The reception is happening before WiML Workshop 2019 in Vancouver, Canada and takes place at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel (5 minutes walk from workshop venue).

The goal of this event is to bring together workshop attendees from different research areas and across all stages of their careers to meet, find mentorship, and learn from each other. We will have two very special guests: Bin Yu, University of California, Berkeley and Celeste Kidd, University of California, Berkeley, giving remarks about their experience, career path, and unique perspective on the machine learning community. The speaker notes will begin at 8pm.

All genders are welcome. Light appetizers will be served.
