WHY WE'VE PARTNERED WITH WiD UK 2017
The data science field is booming as advanced analytics and big data become primary players in the boardroom. Although women make up half of the world’s population, it is well-known that they don’t even come close to parity in the STEM fields. One of the key steps to motivate women of all ages to actively contribute to data science is to engage in meaningful and supportive discussion about best practices, exchange personal experiences and build a data community. We have partnered with WiD UK this year as it is a great opportunity for us to promote both the data sector and diversity.
