The 2017 Women in Statistics and Data Science Conference in La Jolla, California, aims to bring together hundreds of statistical practitioners and data scientists to “Share WISDOM (Women In Statistics, Data science, and -OMics).”
WSDS 2017 will highlight the achievements and career interests of women in statistics and data science. Senior, mid-level, and junior stars representing industrial, academic, and government communities will unite to present their life's work and share their perspectives on the role of women in today’s statistics and data science fields.
Through formal sessions and informal networking opportunities, the conference will empower and challenge women statisticians and biostatisticians to do the following:
- Share knowledge by offering technical talks on important, modern, and cutting-edge research
- Build community by encouraging discussions establishing fruitful multi-disciplinary collaborations, supporting mentoring relationships, and sharing strategies for resolving problems
- Grow influence by providing advice for establishing and sustaining successful careers, showcasing the accomplishments of successful women professionals, and supporting the development of leadership skills
