The mission of the Voices of Data Science conference is to provide a platform to amplify the voices of data scientists, specifically those from underrepresented communities. We aspire to build a strong and inclusive network of data scientists with a shared vision to use data science for common good. We welcome and value participants of all identities and invite you to become a part of our community! 


Voices of Data Science 2021 features talks from data scientists working in a myriad of application areas, from healthcare to the social sciences and more. This year, we celebrate and showcase the success of women (cis and trans) and non-binary data scientists. 


Attend talks and discussions featuring accomplished data scientists, network with peers, mentors and industry sponsors and showcase your work in the student poster session! Come, be a part of “Voices of Data Science”!
