As part of International Women in Data Science (WiDS) Day, the ADSN hosted a panel discussion featuring some of Australia’s top women in Data Science!

Here is the video from that panel discussion. Below the video are details about our panellists.

“Raising the Bar for Australian Data Science”

The panel explored how we as a Data Science Network can increase recognition of Data Science as a discipline in its own right, and representation in terms of more inclusive participation. Also, we investigated where and how we should best apply our Data Science.
