Join us with Kshira Saagar at Wolt as we chat about getting Analytics & Data Science teams a seat at the table - by ensuring that the work done by the DS & Analytics folks impact real-world outcomes and there is credibility & trust built on all sides of an organization to treat Analytics as a True Partner.


Helping data science leaders grow together

We’ve built a group of data scientists that celebrate what it means to be a leader. We prioritize representation from all different industries, genders, ethnicities, backgrounds, and years of experience.

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in the data science game — your title, background, or education either.

What does matter is that you’re passionate about learning, celebrating diverse perspectives, and raising the bar for what it means to be a data scientist.

So join with an open mind, an appetite to learn, and if you’re up to the challenge, something to contribute to your fellow data scientists.

When you grow, we grow.
Hope to see you there!

What happens in a Data Science Hangout?

Each week, host Rachael Dempsey invites an accomplished data science leader to talk about their experience and answer questions from the audience.

The discussion focuses mainly on the human elements of data science leadership. There’s no sales or marketing fluff, just great insights from inspiring professionals.
