Be a Part of the Movement

Data science is critically impacting our societies and at an ever-increasing rate, yet women are still significantly underrepresented. Women in Data Science Worldwide aims to elevate, empower, and support women in the field and lower barriers to entry and career success.

As few as 15% of data scientists today are women. And that lack of diversity is a serious issue.
