Women in Analytics Community
What it is:
A community open to all DAA members who are interested in supporting gender equality within the profession and helping female analysts thrive.
WiA Mission: What do we want to do?
Provide education, advocacy, and influence in order to increase understanding and activate resolution of issues facing women in analytics.
WiA Vision: What kind of world do we want to see?
An analytics profession that supports gender equality.
How WiA connects:
- Monthly calls the 2nd Thursday of every month.
- In-person meetings for 2017 are being scheduled. WiA will gather on February 2, 2017 at the Raleigh Symposium. Thanks to Analytics Pros for sponsoring this event.
- Online via the WiA Community
- A blog to showcase women who are successful analysts and to highlight issues important to females in this profession. If you have ideas for topics that you would like to see covered or if you have someone who you think should be spotlighted, please share.
Coming Benefit: Compensation Survey
WiA jumpstarted dialogue about the creation of a new compensation survey. This new resource will be available in early 2017. It will focus on the profession as a whole, but will also include questions specific to gender and race to help measure equality issues. This compensation study was made possible through the generous support of Google.
So what is missing from WiA? Well, if you are not a member yet - you. We welcome all DAA members to join us – women and men. Please join and get involved so that you can help evolve this profession into all that it can be.
