Register for WiDS Livermore on March 8


The annual Women in Data Science (WiDS) conference returns on Wednesday, March 8. LLNL will again host a regional event in conjunction with the worldwide conference. The all-day WiDS Livermore event is free and will be presented in a hybrid format. Everyone is welcome to attend. Along with plenty of food and networking opportunities, WiDS Livermore will include a livestream of the Stanford conference where LLNL WiDS Ambassador Marisa Torres has been invited to speak to the global audience. Returning this year is the popular “speed mentoring” session, where mentees rotate through breakout rooms to speak with mentors. Attendees can sign up to be mentors or mentees during registration. The event will also include a fireside chat between Dona Crawford, board chair of the Livermore Lab Foundation and former LLNL associate director of Computation, and Nisha Mulakken, LLNL biostatistician and co-director of the Data Science Summer Institute. Featured speakers will be Amanda Randles, assistant professor at Duke University and former Lawrence Fellow, and LLNL design physicist Kelli Humbird, who is part of the team that predicted the fusion ignition shot at the National Ignition Facility. Learn more and register by February 27.
