International Day for Women in Statistics and Data Science (IDWSDS)

When:  Oct 11, 2022 from 09:00 to 17:00 (ET)

Women are under-represented in Statistics and Data Science. There have been global efforts to increase women in STEM disciplines such as the UN’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science, the International Day for Women in Mathematics, and ISI’s International Year of Women in Statistics and Data Science. The responsibility to increase diversity, inclusion and equity falls on each one of us, as we strive to ensure greater future representation among the younger generations within our profession. We must act now. Like the UN and mathematical societies, we propose to create an International Day of Women in Statistics and Data Science (IDWSDS). We will have a virtual conference to celebrate women statisticians and data scientists on the second Tuesday of October.
