We are delighted to welcome you to the 3rd "Women in Data Science - Perspectives in Industry and Academia" event, which will take place virtually on 18th May 2022 from 3:00 - 5:30 pm (CEST). This year we have Bioinfo4Women at our side, an initiative from the Life Sciences department at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (Barcelona, Spain) working in close collaboration with ELIXIR Spain with the aim to promote the research done by women in computational biology.

In the upcoming event, three prestigious female speakers from academia and industry will provide their recommendations on building careers in Data Science and related fields and show advancement opportunities. In conclusion, a panel discussion with special guest Karina Gibert (Ambassador Women in Data Science Barcelona) will focus on promoting women and recognizing their accomplishments in the Data Science world.
