About Women in Data

Women in Data was created in 2015, when our founder noticed the lack of women representation as she began her journey into data. Concerned about the prospect of gender equality in a data-driven future, the first chapter of Women in Data was launched.

We have since shaped Women in Data to the global community we are today. A place for data enthusiasts of all backgrounds to connect, grow, and lead together.

Our mission since day one has been to increase diversity in data careers because we know representation and participation of all kinds matters, especially in growing, in-demand roles across data and technology.

At our core, we want to achieve gender equality and empower women and girls in the field of data. Unfortunately, gender parity remains far off around the world. Whether it’s often carrying the burden of unpaid work (hello moms everywhere) or not being made aware or given the same opportunities as men, women are still falling behind.
