The 2022 Women in Statistics and Data Science Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, highlighted the achievements and career interests of women in statistics and data science. Senior, mid-level, and junior stars representing industrial, academic, and government communities united to present their life’s work and share their perspectives about the role of women in today’s statistics and data science fields.
Through formal sessions and informal networking opportunities, the conference empowered and challenged female 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 female professionals, and supporting the development of leadership skills
