‘Women in Data Science’


The She and They Do Science & Tech group is delighted to invite you to the first event in their seminar series: Women in Data Science. This event will take place at the Data Science Institute of the University of Galway but it will also be streamed online.

This new seminar series aims to encourage women and gender minority people to learn, share and participate in the field of Science and Technology in a safe space of like-minded people. It will provide a platform to connect people from industry and academia, a platform that not only gives an overview of the achievements of women and gender minority people but also provides a room to talk about their work, issues and problems freely.

The first event will feature discussions with a range of experts in different areas in the Data Science field. Gargi Gupta, PhD at the SFI Centre for Research Training in Machine Learning (Technological University Dublin) who talk about her research field of explainable AI. Vicky Twomey-Lee, founder of Py-Ladies in Dublin will describe how the group tries to help more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community.
