The Women in Data Science (WiDS) Berkeley Conference took place on March 2, 2020, and was sponsored by Research IT, the Berkeley iSchool, CITRIS & the Banatao Institute, and the Division of Data Science, Computing, and Society. WiDS Berkeley is a satellite event associated with theWomen in Data Scienceconference at Stanford. This was the third year that UC Berkeley hosted a WiDS event and it featured a mixture of live Berkeley events - including a keynote, tech talks, a panel, lunch, and reception - and streaming content from the Stanford conference.
The Global WiDS Conference is an annual one-day technical conference based at Stanford University, which brings together data scientists and professionals in adjacent fields from around the globe to discuss the latest research and applications of data science in a broad set of domains. Keynotes and technical talks from the WiDS conference at Stanford will be live-streamed and we will also host in-person talks and networking events highlighting the work of women in data science at Berkeley.
All genders are invited to participate in the conference, which features exclusively female speakers.
