Women in Machine Learning and Data Science
WiMLDS is a 501(c)(3) organization. Its mission is to support and promote women and gender minorities who are practicing, studying or are interested in the fields of machine learning and data science. They create opportunities for members to engage in technical and professional conversations in a positive, supportive environment by hosting talks by women and gender minority individuals working in data science or machine learning, as well as hosting technical workshops, networking events and hackathons. We are inclusive to anyone who supports our cause regardless of gender identity or technical background.
A number of organizations and initiatives currently support diversity, equity, and inclusion across data science, environmental science, and related fields through training, mentoring, and networking opportunities. This collection will provide links and descriptions of those organizations and/or initiatives to increase awareness among our members.
