WiDS Livermore is an independent event organized by LLNL ambassadors to coincide with the annual global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference held at Stanford University and an estimated 200+ locations worldwide. All genders are invited to attend WiDS regional events, which features outstanding women doing outstanding work.

The global WiDS Conference aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field. This one-day technical conference provides an opportunity to hear about the latest data science related research and applications in a number of domains, and connect with others in the field. The program features thought leaders covering a wide range of domains from data ethics and privacy, healthcare, data visualization, and more. Learn more via the WiDS podcast and WiDS worldwide news.

Save the date: WiDS Livermore returns on Wednesday, March 8, 2023. This will be a hybrid event.

Our 5th regional event took place on Monday, March 7. The program for this one-day virtual conference included a livestream of the Stanford conference as well as workshops, mentoring sessions, and networking opportunities. This year’s Livermore event also featured a fireside chat between Kim Budil, LLNL’s first woman director, and Jessie Gaylord, leader of LLNL’s Global Security Computing Applications Division.
