Buzz words like “data science”, “machine learning”, “artificial intelligence”, “digital transformation,”, “big data” are often thrown around the business world with reckless abandon. But what do these phrases actually mean? How is data used at modern companies?
Join Women in Data NYC at our first symposium of 2019, where we’ll hear firsthand from data scientists about their experiences working in the data industry. At this event, you’ll learn how data science can be applied to real world problems, how you can expand your skillset to be a leader in the field of data, and how to stand out in the recruiting process.

Keynote Speaker Session Overviews:Rebecca Robins - DataCampGetting a “data science” job can seem daunting and full of barriers, but data may be closer than you think. In this talk, DataCamp will discuss less traditional avenues into the field of data, ways to “touch data” in non-data roles, and personal data journeys of a few DataCamp employees. For this talk, let go of your beliefs of what it means to work in data, and welcome a world of possibilities.Matt Stabile - AverityIn this talk, Matt will provide actionable insights on how you can land your dream job.
