Message from Founder, Asha Saxena

    WLDA was created because of my passion for data and AI, and my desire to see more women in the field. I believe that mentorship and peer-to-peer feedback is the best way for women to learn from and uplift each other for the betterment of all.

    Since its creation, WLDA has been a place to build authentic connections and lifelong relationships that bring members success, learning, and a direction in which to pay it forward.
