The conference is for those at every stage in their career, from students to professionals, and aims to encourage statisticians representing the industrial, academic, and government communities to share their perspectives on the role of women in today’s statistics and data science fields.

Through formal sessions and informal networking opportunities, the conference will empower and challenge women statisticians and biostatisticians to do the following:

• Share knowledge by offering technical talks about important, modern, and cutting-edge research.

• Build community by encouraging discussions establishing fruitful multi-disciplinary collaborations, supporting mentoring relationships, and sharing strategies for resolving problems.

• Grow influence by providing advice for establishing and sustaining successful careers, showcasing the accomplishments of successful women professionals, and supporting the development of leadership skills.

To be eligible for the Travel Award, applicants must be either students enrolled in a terminal degree program (bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral) in biostatistics, statistics, or data science or have completed a master’s or doctoral degree program in biostatistics, statistics, or data science within the last five years (2013–2018).
