Caucus for Women in Statistics (CWS) is Celebrating Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday

Florence Nightingale quote: “Live life when you have it. Life is a splendid gift – there is nothing small about it.”

ISI, along with the American Statistical Association, the International Biometric Society, the Royal Statistical Society and the Caucus for Women in Statistics are celebrating this International Year of Women in Statistics and Data Science with a finale at ISI 2021. The beginning of this year (May 12, 2020) coincides with the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.  There will be activities throughout the year.  CWS will post links here that may be of interest to you.  If you have a link to share, please email cws@cwstat.org and they will be added.  It looks like it will be a great year in spite of COVID-19. #IYWSDS
