All genders are invited to attend the conference, which features outstanding women doing outstanding work.

WiDS Pune 2020 conference committee, (WiMLDS Pune is the primary organizer of this event) invites local organizations who share similar values and mission as us to plan local events that coincide with the Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference at Stanford University and an estimated 50+ countries and 150+ locations worldwide.

The WiDS events worldwide are happening around March 2020, which aligns with International Women’s Day time frame.

The vision of this community is to, also help people reskill, upskill in the field of Data Science, give them a platform to learn, grow and support them by knowledge sharing and creating opportunities. This conference will also create a great networking platform for businesses who have not yet adopted or used Data Science.
