The Caucus for Women in Statistics (CWS) and the Portuguese Statistical Association (SPE) are proud to announce the launching of the International Day for Women in Statistics and Data Science (IDWSDS) with its first annual celebration event on October 11, 2022 (the second Tuesday of October). They hope that this will be the annual event for the celebration of women statisticians and data scientists around the world.
Women are under-represented in Statistics and Data Science. There have been global efforts to increase women in STEM disciplines such as the UN’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science, the International Day for Women in Mathematics, and ISI’s International Year of Women in Statistics and Data Science. The responsibility to increase diversity, inclusion and equity falls on each one of us, as we strive to ensure greater future representation among the younger generations within our profession. We must act now. Like the UN and mathematical societies, They propose to create an International Day of Women in Statistics and Data Science (IDWSDS). They will have a virtual conference to celebrate women statisticians and data scientists on the second Tuesday of October.
WHAT IS THE IDWSDS?
The IDWSDS will promote and celebrate women in statistics and data science all around the globe with a conference. The aims are to:
· Showcase women and their contributions to the field
· Connect women statisticians and data scientists around the world
· Encourage collaborations among statistical societies around the world
· Impact statistics and data science to become more inclusive and diverse
· Bridgestatistics and data science

Note that this will be a virtual event in the spirit of the first Around the World conference which means there will be a place for both live and recorded presentations and sessions and other contributions.
