Since 2012, the Broadening Participation in Data Mining program (BPDM) has fostered mentorship, guidance, and connections of minority and underrepresented groups in Data Mining and Machine Learning, while also enriching technical aptitude and exposure. We provide venues which have encouraged over 200 students to connect with junior and senior researchers in industry, academia, and government. We hope to create and help grow meaningful lasting connections between researchers, thereby strengthening the Data Mining Community.
