Supporting women in machine learning

Our flagship event is the annual WiML Workshop, a technical workshop for women to present their research in machine learning. Looking for local meetups? Check out WiMLDS, another organization that supports women in machine learning by organizing local meetups.


Our goal is to enhance the experience of women in machine learning, and thereby increase the number and impact of women in machine learning.


We work to increase awareness and appreciation of the achievements of women in machine learning. Our programs help women build their technical confidence and their voice, and our publicity efforts help ensure that women in machine learning and their achievements are known in the community.
