WDSI President’s Message

Every year WDSI brings together some of the finest minds from across a wide range of disciplines and industries, united by our shared passion for advancing decision sciences and shaping a brighter future for our students and communities. As we convene to exchange ideas, share insights, and foster collaboration, we are reminded of the pivotal role that decision sciences play in shaping our world. In an era defined by rapid technological advancements, intricate global networks, and complex challenges, our ability to make informed and effective decisions has never been more crucial. WDSI’s legacy has been to provide a platform for thought leaders, researchers, practitioners, and students to engage in meaningful dialogue, while cultivating new professional and personal relationships. Our academically and geographically diverse group of participants challenge convention, question assumptions, and embrace innovation. In doing so, we continue the legacy of WDSI – one that inspires and empowers generations to come.

My heartfelt gratitude to the current and past board members who have worked tirelessly to make the organization what it is today.
