The 2019 Women in Statistics and Data Science Conference in Bellevue, Washington, aims to bring together hundreds of statistical practitioners and data scientists.
WSDS 2019 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 about important, modern, and cutting-edge research
- Build community by encouraging discussions establishing fruitful multidisciplinary 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
Celebrate your success and find unique opportunities to grow your influence, your community, and your knowledge.
