Diversity and inclusion
WiDS is about diversity and inclusion. About empowering people by appreciating what makes them different. Ymke de Jong (Data & AI lead, Philips Global Data & AI CoE Clinical Data Scientist, Digital Innovator in Healthcare and speaker at WiDS 2022) explains: “Data science is one of the fastest growing fields in the tech sector. It is crucial that everyone is represented here and that women are offered equal opportunities. At Philips we believe that a diverse, inclusive and committed workforce is essential for a flourishing and innovative company, helping our customers and improving healthcare. We hold ourselves and our organisation responsible for progress in the field of diversity and inclusion, and the promotion of a cooperation based on a purposeful, energetic work culture.'' Ymke de Jong was one of the keynote speakers at WiDS Netherlands in 2022.
It’s our mission to keep growing our audience every year. Therefor we will try to conclude more partnerships with Universities and sponsors. This way we hope to get more engagement around the diversity and inclusion topic and hope to empower more women to get into the data science field. You can register now for WiDS Eindhoven 2023.
