Livermore WiDS provides forum for women in data science
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) celebrated the 2022 Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) conference on March 7 with its fifth annual regional event, featuring workshops, mentoring sessions and a discussion with LLNL Director Kim Budil, the first woman to hold that role.
For the second straight year, the WiDS Livermore event was entirely virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Attendees tuned in via Webex to view talks and presentations by LLNL women data scientists, engage in breakout sessions and view a livestream of the 2022 WiDS conference, hosted by Stanford University. The global conference comprised keynote addresses, technical talks and panel discussions with researchers from academia, government, industry and non-profit organizations.
