Our Commitment to Diversity at Events:

In Europe, women comprise just over half of the population but represent only 15% of tech experts (18% in Belgium)*. As women organizers who have faced challenges in finding a platform among local data science communities that often lacked diversity commitments, we firmly believe in the strength of diverse voices and perspectives. Our public events are dedicated to bringing together relevant expertise and a balanced array of viewpoints, ensuring inclusivity and empowerment for all.
