While women account for roughly 55% of university graduates their presence in STEM-related sectors like software development, engineering or analytics is significantly lower. According to various surveys from WEF, Global Gender Gap Report and BCG, women make up only between 15% to 22% of all data science professionals.
In BcnAnalytics we want to reflect on the gender gap in the field of Data Analytics and Data Science. Why is this happening? What can we do about it? So we are organizing an event that will focus on Gender Gap.
When: November 22nd, from 19h to 21h.
Where: Adevinta offices at Barcelona
As speakers, we will have Elisenda Bou-Balust (co-founder and CTO at Vilynx, now Head of Apple Media Knowledge) and Marta Cardona (Data Lead at Holaluz).
After the talks food and drinks will be provided so we all have time for some networking and follow-up discussions.
