Purlin data science tech star Hasmik Galstyan was featured as a Guest Speaker for the 2021 Women in Data Science (WiDS) Worldwide Conference. The global initiative spanned 60+ countries, 150+ regional events, and included over 100,000 data science participants. Stanford University began hosting this event five years ago to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field. Purlin has shared this goal from inception, purveying the best possible global team without bias, while actively recruiting and developing top female talent.

Hasmik’s presentation for the WiDS Worldwide Conference is part of the “Empowering Females through Capacity Building to promote technology in non-technology sectors” program, implemented by IFC (World Bank Group) and UK Government’s Good Governance Fund. The project aims to assist in the development of an advanced understanding of the link between data science and politics, industry, government, engineering, etc., and to promote the role of female scientists in data science and their engagement in society. Topics presented covered a wide range of domains from data ethics and privacy, healthcare, data visualization and more.
