As part of the Women in Data Science Pittsburgh conference, the Pittsburgh useR Meetup group is co-hosting an opening reception at The Yard Shadyside on April 5th at 5:30 pm. Find out more or register here: http://stat.cmu.edu/wids/
WiDS Pittsburgh @CMU was held for the first time last year and had nearly 150 local participants including students, faculty, companies, non-profits, and campus organizations. WiDS is an international conference primarily located in Stanford, CA with 100+ satellite conferences across every continent except Antarctica. In 2018, over 100,000 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 the 2019 year and we’ve expanded to a 3-day event. Day 1 is a Careers in Data Science Panel held at the CMU New York Location (live streamed here in Pittsburgh), Day 2 is a networking welcome reception at The Yard in Shadyside (co-hosted by the Pittsburgh useR Meetup and the Pittsburgh Women in Machine Learning and Data Science Meetup), and Day 3 is a full-day technical conference hosted 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.
