Women in Big Data, ACT Region Inaugural Launch

The goal of the Women in Big Data Forum is to strengthen the diversity in the big data field. As part of this initiative, we would like to encourage and attract more female talent to big data analytics field and help them connect, engage and grow.

The Women in Big Data Forum is out to champion the success of women in Big Data and to increase women's representation in Big Data to 25% by 2020.

Please bring yourself. You are welcome to bring a colleague (female or male) interested in all things data, but we would appreciate everyone registering on meet-up so we can track numbers for catering purposes. We will provide logistic details for sign-in proceedures at Parliament House before the event.
