Hello Wids team, thank you so much for providing such a wonderful content. It is such an motivation and opportunities for an individual like me who is looking forward to pursue careers in Data Science. As someone who wants to use math in social development projects I wanted to request if you could bring speakers from UNDP or similar platform who can share their journey and what they do in their roles. Once again thank you so much for giving this platform and I really appreciate it!
