As part of the Women in Data Science Pittsburgh @CMU conference, the Pittsburgh useR Meetup group and the Women in Machine Learning and Data Science Meetup Group are co-hosting an opening reception at The Oaklander Hotel on March 20th at 5:30 pm.

WiDS Pittsburgh @CMU was held for the first time in 2018 and had nearly 150 local participants, including students, faculty, companies, non-profits, and campus organizations. Our 2019 event expanded to three days across multiple Carnegie Mellon University campuses, and included even more local leaders and organizations. WiDS is an international conference primarily located in Stanford, CA with 150+ satellite conferences across every continent except Antarctica. In 2019, over 120,000 people attended the conference in person and via the Livestream and Facebook Live. The purpose of WiDS is “to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and support women in the field”; the conference features exclusively female speakers from academia and industry.
We are very excited to announce that WiDS Pittsburgh @CMU is back for 2020. March 20th is a networking reception at The Oaklander Hotel, (co-hosted by the Pittsburgh useR Meetup and the Pittsburgh Women in Machine Learning and Data Science Meetup). The main conference will be held on Saturday, March 21st. The technical conference starts with a Data Science in Finance Panel (co-hosted with the MSCF program) in the Tepper Quad, with the remaining conference programming held in the Giant Eagle Auditorium on CMU’s Pittsburgh campus.
For being part of this group you can attend the opening reception for free, but we'd greatly appreciate your sponsorship (or donation of student tickets!): http://stat.cmu.edu/wids/#section-sponsors
