Yesterday I got an opportunity to be a part of WiDS conference. Of all the conferences that I ’ve attended, this one was special. It is an initiative of Stanford and was organised by Sucheta Dhere, a woman who truly believes that if we come together we can create something great and ’Data has no gender’. This entire event was paperless and had implemented many innovative things such as facial recognition for registration, live scribbling, Lego for understanding data science concepts and mood tracking, etc. All the speakers were extraordinary women who have aced their respective fields.
