Data Science, Analytics, Business Intelligence and Technology…
in general are clearly male-dominated fields, yet at the same time, most organizations are struggling for talent. Data Girls movement was born out of belief, that women have many talents and virtues and lots of value to bring to the table when it comes to these areas. The missing piece was a platform where they could get their basic bearing and learn the foundation of data analytics and BI. DataGirls concept was created in Czech Republic by Czechitas and Keboola.
With the opening of it’s first office in Singapore in 2015 the team behind Keboola immediately started looking at options to bring this great idea to Asia. By the end of the 2017, we hosted workshops in Sydney, Singapore and Melbourne totaling more than 1300 workshop attendees. During this time we gathered team of great volunteers and corporate partners who help us to make this happen, among them Facebook, Yellowfin, Minerra, REA Group, TAL, Billigence of course, Keboola Singapore and many more. All workshops we host are always free for participants so we really couldn’t achieve this without our supporters.
Data Girls is a signature workshop we perfected over 25 different runs in past year and a half, you can read about its details further down. in 2018 we aim to extend our reach to Hong Kong and Jakarta, Indonesia. We have also developed other workshops such as Advanced Data Visualization, Digital Marketing Basics or even Soft skills workshops that we run occasionally in every location. We will harbor all of these different workshops under She Loves Data community we are creating for this purpose. Website is coming soon but you can now join the community in a Facebook group! It’s the easiest way to learn about upcoming events!
