Women in Data Science
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.
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.
