Women in Data Science Tucson Regional Event

Tuesday, February 19, 2019


The Women in Data Science (WiDS) initiative aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and support women in the field. WiDS started as a conference at Stanford in November 2015. Now, WiDS includes a global conference, with 150+ regional events worldwide; a datathon, encouraging participants to hone their skills; and a podcast, featuring leaders in the field talking about their work, and their journeys. On Friday, April 5th, 2019 WiDS-Tucson was held in the ENR2 building room S-107 from 8:30am-4:00pm, with a Happy Hour following.

WiDS-Tucson 2019 was amazing! Over 100 people attended and enjoyed a day of learning about Data Science efforts in many fields, with a lot of networking to share ideas. A very big Thank You to our Speakers, Data Blitz, and/or a poster presenters. All presenters did an excellent job and many positive comments were heard throughout the day.
