WiDS Lisboa took place on Saturday, 27th April in CATÓLICA-LISBON. WiDS Lisboa is a regional event, hosted by CEA (Centro de Estudos Aplicados - UCP) and SAP, in collaboration with the Women in Data Science Conference at Stanford University.
WiDS initiative happens all over the word and aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and support women in the field.
In this WiDS Lisboa we intended to be inspirational, promote roll-models end to involve more women to this area.
We had the participation of women from IBM, Microsoft, Banco Único and SAP. The model of the conference will be small talks with subjects related to: how data science was important to these women’s career, why is important women to get in data science, opportunities in the area and what is the state of the art in this field and in academia.
