KAUST participate in WiDS: Lifting up Female Scientists

KAUST Celebrated Women's Achievements

Women in Data Science (WiDS) is like the Global Women's March for analytics; it's a phenomenon too big for just one city. WiDS is the largest data science conference on Earth—taking place in over 50 countries, it has attained more than 100,000 attendees and is tagged as a global movement.

The annual conference aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide—regardless of gender—and support women in the field. 

This year's WiDS conference was held at Stanford University with more than 100 regional institutions all over the world participating, including KAUST.​​

The University celebrated women's achievements with the one-day technical conference providing an opportunity to hear about the latest data science related research and applications in a broad set of domains. Both men and women were encouraged to participate in the conference, which featured exclusively female speakers.​
