    I will share a secret with you. The Women in Statistics and Data Science conference is my favorite. I think the pictures in this photo essay will convince you of why this is true. Enjoy this recap of WSDS 2022 and be on the lookout for information about WSDS 2023. I have a feeling it will become your favorite, too!

    “Let’s Talk the Issues” was the title of the opening plenary panel and the theme for the Women in Statistics and Data Science conference. Panelists are (top, from left) Nairanjana Dasgupta of Washington State University and president-elect of the Committee on Women in Statistics, Eunice Kim of Microsoft and chair of the Caucus for Women in Statistics, Motomi Mori of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and president of the Committee on Women in Statistics, Jessica Kohlschmidt of The Ohio State University and executive director of the Committee on Women in Statistics (bottom left), and Emily Casleton of the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Caucus for Women in Statistics member (bottom right).

    We all have superpowers, and the “Diverse Voices” plenary panelists shared theirs. Panelists are (from left) Micaela Parker of the Academic Data Science Alliance, Rebecca Hubbard of the University of Pennsylvania, Dong-Yun Kim of the National Institutes for Health, and Elizabeth Juarez-Colunga of the University of Colorado, Denver.

     

    Participants from government, industry, and academe came together at WSDS. Eli Holmes of NOAA Fisheries (left) presents about open science adoption within organizations. (Additionally, Holmes and colleague Emily Markowitz, also of NOAA Fisheries, taught one of the WSDS short courses.) Emily Griffith of the North Carolina State University Department of Statistics (right) presents her work with the Data Science Academy.

     

    Mixing knowledge and refreshments at the poster sessions is an important part of WSDS.

     

    WSDS celebrates students and early-career professionals. Xiaoxia Champon, a graduate student in the department of statistics at North Carolina State University, presents her research on clustering categorical valued functional data with application to social media.

     

    Building community is an important goal for WSDS, and this includes the opportunity to talk with ASA president Kathy Ensor.

     

    Share knowledge, build community, and grow influence are the WSDS goals. ASA President Kathy Ensor takes time to explain how her initiatives align with these goals.
