Women in Analytics Conversation
Moderator: Amy Sample, VP Business Intelligence at PBS

Since the DAA's WiA initiative launched in 2016, the Women in Analytics movement has marched on - with conferences and networking groups popping up in organizations across the industry. The DAA's own WiA mentoring program is now in its second year.

Let's continue our conversation. What success stories do you have to share with the group? What techniques have you applied in your organization to attract and retain more women analysts? How do we address the differences in equity perceptions among men and women? How do we achieve a better gender balance in senior leadership positions? Where do we need to focus our energies for the next year?

We welcome both women and men for what continues to be an exciting discussion about our profession.

With the rise of react and single page apps in web development, cookie-cutter tracking pixels are becoming outdated as a framework for analytics.

I plan on speaking about some of the key learnings from my work at Best Buy for re-implementing analytics for multiple single page web apps.
