Women in Data Science

How well do you, honestly, understand data science and the opportunities that exist within it? We have reached the tipping point in big data. We can now access, manage and manipulate massive amounts of data with ease. We need the right people to continue to streamline these processes and we need Data Poets, that can provide analysis and practical applications across multiple industries. Join us for a panel where we'll discuss application and importance of data science in the Advertising and Media industries, the opportunities for women in this new discipline, and the unique challenges and opportunities that accompany this career choice.

We hope you found it interesting and walked away with some valuable ideas in managing your career.  Please join us in thanking our panelists Kristen Metzger, Ife Babatunde, Jamie Petkanic and Courtenay Harry and our moderator, Karyn Detje.

Karyn kicked off the evening with this video featuring Ginni Rometty which really defines how women evaluate opportunities and our own experience. If you missed it, it is a short 3 minute video and worth a look. For the rest of us, it is a great reminder of how we often speak to ourselves. 

For those of you who were not able to attend, you were missed, but not to worry, you don't need to miss out. Be sure to join AWM NYC today and you will have the opportunity to attend our members only Taking Risks workshop session in the fall.
