Women in Data Science Netherlands is an independent conference organized by Pipple, Eindhoven University of Technology TU/e, EAISI (Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute), Maastricht University, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam Data Science, Leiden University and Utrecht University to coincide with the annual Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference held at Stanford University and an estimated 200+ locations worldwide.
WiDS Netherlands is about diversity and inclusion. About empowering people by appreciating what makes them different. WiDS aims to inspire and educate students, professionals and academics (men and women) through relating countless inspiring women talking about their expertise and experiences within the field.
Philips has committed to this event as the main sponsor. In addition to Philips, ASML, SAS, CZ, Pipple and the High Tech Campus WiDS heartedly support the event.
Ymke de Jong (Data & AI lead, Philips Global Data & AI CoE Clinical Data Scientist, Digital Innovator in Healthcare and speaker at WiDS 2022) explains: “Data science is one of the fastest growing fields in the tech sector. It is crucial that everyone is represented here and that women are offered equal opportunities. At Philips we believe that a diverse, inclusive and committed workforce is essential for a flourishing and innovative company, helping our customers and improving healthcare. We hold ourselves and our organisation responsible for progress in the field of diversity and inclusion, and the promotion of a cooperation based on a purposeful, energetic work culture.” In addition to Ymke de Jong, ten other speakers will be sharing their knowledge and experience on Monday 16 May.
