ABI.Local hosts multiple events to connect, support, and promote women technologists. Recently, our Silicon Valley chapter teamed up with Women in Big Data to organize “Careers in Data Science,” an event with networking opportunities and a panel discussion. The panelists included industry experts who spoke about how they use data science at their companies. Telle Whitney, CEO and President of the Anita Borg Institute, was one of the panelists, and explained how we at the Anita Borg Institute use data science to analyze the women in tech landscape. By evaluating this data, we hope to find new and better ways of reaching out to women-in-tech and increasing diversity in our field.
