More than 100 LLNL staff and students gathered virtually for the first session of a new career panel series inspired by the annual Women in Data Science conference and sponsored by the Data Science Institute.
LLNL was honored by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) Winds of Change magazine as one of the Top 50 STEM Workplaces in 2021, as an organization setting the standard for indigenous STEM professionals.
Coinciding with International Women’s Day on March 8, LLNL’s 4th Women in Data Science (WiDS) regional event brought women together to discuss successes, opportunities and challenges of being female in a mostly male field.
