In this episode, we will highlight the stories of women in computing who are successfully leading a diverse set of careers in the data field. Together we will discuss, what are some of the most in-demand data careers? What are the top skills required to be an analyst, scientist, engineer, or manager in the data space? How can one break into the field of data science? How do we expect the data landscape to evolve in the next decade, especially fueled by the COVID era? And most importantly, how did their unique personal background, interests, and career aspirations led them to be where they are today?
In their stories, we will find our nuggets of wisdom and inspiration.
