what we do
Our events are organized by female data scientists and feature only women on stage. However, participants of all genders and backgrounds are more than welcome to attend! Most talks are intentionally fairly technical and aimed towards current or aspiring data scientists, data engineers, machine learning engineers, as well as other AI experts. In the past 5 years, we have organized 5 annual conference of WiDS Stockholm in association with Stanford WiDS global initiative as well as multiple miniconferences and social events.
Our goal is to create, inspire and support a strong community for women technologists. Our network currently has 1.6K women in the field in Sweden in our Facebook group, as well as a LinkedIn page and community. Our community consists primarily of women in data science, machine learning, AI, data analytics and data engineering, as well as students and others technical practitioners interested in entering the field.
WiDS Sweden runs a once a year mentorship program and has launched a women speaker database to showcase great women in data science, ML & AI in Sweden and allow other event organizers to create more diverse speaker lineups. Stay tuned for more projects!
