The Nordic Women and Data Summit (NWD Summit) is envisioned as an annual event bringing together the community of women data practitioners to share ideas, discuss ways to harness the full potential of data and accelerate data- and AI-innovation across organisations.

On stage, we are bringing some of the most forward thinking female data practitioners of different positions and responsibilities in organisations from both private and public sector in the Nordics, covering topics that will provide a holistic approach to value creation of data and information, and turning this information to action.
