Our mission is to increase visibility to the women making an impact in the analytics space and provide a platform for women to lead the conversations around the advancements of analytical research, development, and applications.
WIA was founded in 2016 with the goal of supporting women in the analytics space and has grown into a global community focused on bringing visibility to women in the field while delivering top-notch analytics content.
The inaugural conference took place in Columbus, OH and hosted an audience of 150 individuals. The event was welcoming to anyone that wanted to attend with a spotlight on women speakers that shared their work in the analytics space.
Increasing visibility of the work being done by women in the data and analytics space creates more opportunity for diversity in the industry and academia.
