DAA Diversity Scholarship


 

Applications are being accepted until August 1 for the 2022 cohort of DAA Diversity Scholars.

Digital Analytics Association is committed to eradicating racism by harnessing the passion of DAA members. We use data and the strength of our community to create short- and long-term solutions. We work both within the analytics community and with adjacent groups such as primary, secondary, and university academic institutions to develop diversity, inclusion, and equity within the analytics field.

In order to reach out to a broader range of analytics leaders, DAA has worked with Meta to establish the DAA Diversity Scholarship program for diverse digital analytics leaders. The goals of the program are:

 

  • To provide individuals from identified under-represented groups in analytics (i.e., people of color, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender people, people with disabilities) with support and opportunities for career growth and leadership.
  • To provide the analytics community with increased access to a diverse pool of talented analytics leaders.

Benefits

Leadership Development
Scholarship recipients are expected to participate actively in the DAA including active participation in the anti-racism task force's work to improve lives by eliminating systemic racism in the analytics community and beyond. Scholars will be exposed to a wide range of analytics leaders who can candidly share their successes and challenges in their leadership roles and be available for open dialogue on challenges and issues. Through this process, Diversity Scholars will develop their own leadership style and learn how to put that style into action and create national networking opportunities with other analytics professionals.
