In response to the current COVID-19 restrictions on large face-to-face gatherings, the 4th annual Women in Data Science (WiDS) Charlotte Conference will be held virtually on March 4th-5th, 2021. 

With the flexibility of a virtual environment, WiDS Charlotte 2021 will be held over multiple days (March 4th - 5th), granting the opportunity to host an even larger number of attendees than our traditional conference space could support.

The Women in Data Science (WiDS) Charlotte Conference is an event hosted and sponsored by UNC Charlotte’s School of Data Science and Lowe's, Inc. The conference aims to inspire, educate, and engage current and future data scientists in the Carolinas, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field by providing training, networking, and mentoring opportunities.

WiDS Charlotte is an independent event organized by UNC Charlotte's WiDS Ambassadors to Stanford University's Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference held at Stanford University and an estimated 150 locations worldwide. All genders are invited to attend WiDS regional events, which feature outstanding women doing outstanding work.
