Event Details


The inaugural Toronto Women in Data Science Conference in collaboration with Stanford University will demonstrate the broad applications of data science across different industries and shed light on the career journeys of women in data science. All genders are invited to participate in the conference, which features exclusively female speakers.

The Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and support women in the field. This annual one-day technical conference provides an opportunity to hear about the latest data science related research and applications in a broad set of domains. Since the inaugural conference in 2015, WiDS has gone global with over 80 regional events worldwide from 30 countries and more than 75,000 people from 75 countries participated in 2017. WiDS Toronto is pleased to contribute to this global phenomenon, and help increase diversity in data science.

The one-day technical conference, known as "WiDS” was launched in November 2015
with three main goals:
• To educate all participants—regardless of gender—about the latest research and stateof-
the-art technologies, challenges, and future trends
• To inspire students about exciting areas of research and application in data science,
women role models, and the plethora of opportunities in the field
• To support women in the field of data science—whether as practitioners in industry or
researchers and educators in academia—helping them to gain exposure for their work,
increase networking connections, and further their efforts in the field
