What we’re about

Women in Machine Learning and Data Science (WiMLDS) is a community of self-identified women and non-binary individuals interested in machine learning and data science. We host events which include talks by prominent data scientists, lightning talks, technical workshops and networking events. Our members include engineers, technologists, statisticians, students and many other professionals who work in data science or would like to transition into this field.

Our mission is to support and promote women* practicing, studying or interested in the fields of machine learning and data science. We create opportunities for women* to engage in technical and professional conversations in a positive, supportive environment by hosting talks by prominent data scientists, technical workshops, networking events and hack-a-thons. We are inclusive to anyone who supports our cause regardless of gender or technical background. However, in support of our mission, priority for certain events and opportunities will be given to women*.

* individuals who identify as female, non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, and all minority genders
