Women in Data

Our Women in Data campaign aims to showcase the rich landscape of women working with data science, technology and innovation across a diverse range of industries, fields and sectors in the City Region. From students to government ministers, chief executives to lab technicians, our campaign captures the profiles of our region’s women in data, tech and related fields.

Our aim is to show women and girls that others ‘just like them’ are thriving in these areas, including from atypical and ‘non-scientific’ backgrounds. The campaign sheds light on their stories and talents, celebrates their historical and current roles, and supports long-term, critical conversations about the ongoing journey to gender equality.
