Don’t miss our women in data science event
Tues 11 June 2019
15:00 – 17:30
The University of Edinburgh
Join us on 11 June for an afternoon of discussion and debate on how best to support women working in computational technologies in research, teaching, and professional services.
The Data-Driven Innovation initiative, led by the University of Edinburgh, aims to expand on existing expertise and talent in the City Region to grow data-based projects, products, and services in the public, private, and third sectors.
To do this, we want to deliver data-driven innovation in a way that is socially inclusive, so must tackle both implicit and explicit biases within the technology communities and industries, and data structures themselves.
We’re starting by asking, what can be done to support gender equality in data science at the University of Edinburgh?
• Professor Charlie Jeffery – Senior Vice Principal
• Rachel Hosker – Deputy Head of Special Collections and Archives Manager
• Melissa Highton – Assistant Principal, Director of Learning, Teaching and Web Services
• DDI Women in Data Project – Jarmo Eskelinen, Executive Director, Data-Driven Innovation Programme, & Poppy Gerrard-Abbott, PhD candidate in Sociology
• Would you want your daughter to work in the data sector? – Professor Judy Robertson, School of Informatics & School of Education
This event will be followed by a drinks reception. Register for this free event on our Eventbrite page
