What we're about

WiMLDS's mission is to support and promote women and gender minorities who are practicing, studying or are interested in the fields of machine learning and data science. We create opportunities for members to engage in technical and professional conversations in a positive, supportive environment by hosting talks by women and gender minority individuals working in data science or machine learning. Events include technical workshops, networking events and hackathons. We are inclusive to anyone who supports our cause regardless of gender identity or technical background.

Our Code of Conduct ( https://github.com/WiMLDS/starter-kit/wiki/Code-of-conduct ) is available online and applies to all our spaces, both online and off.

• Follow @wimlds ( https://twitter.com/wimlds ) on Twitter for general WiMLDS news or visit http://wimlds.org ( http://wimlds.org/ ) to learn about our chapters in other cities.

• Women & gender minorities are invited to join the global WiMLDS Slack group by sending an email to slack@wimlds.org.
