2018 Proceeds Donated To
Data Science for Women Summer Camp
A 2017 report from BHEF-PWC noted that critical actions for change were needed to create a diverse data science and analytics (DSA) workforce, as men “consistently outnumber women 3 to 1”. Working with partners across campus and in the local community, the Translational Data Analytics Institute at Ohio State is excited to launch a new summer program designed to create new pathways for women in DSA.
Integrating hands-on experience, team projects, and time with women working in analytics today, this camp will introduce young women to data science and analytics and the opportunities they present – both in college and as a career.
We’re interested in partnering with corporate, campus, and individual partners who share a passion for creating pathways to data science and analytics for women and underrepresented minorities.
Young Women in Tech
Young Women in Tech is a nonprofit organization that focuses on promoting education among young women in the Bhutanese-Nepalese refugee community in Columbus, Ohio. This year, we ran a week-long summer camp from June 25 – June 29 for young women in the community ages 11-18. The camp focused on basic IT fields such as cybersecurity, google apps, coding, and graphic design. The girls were taught by several professional volunteers all provided by the IT sector of Huntington National Bank. Most were exposed to these various professions for the first time and several showed interest in pursuing careers in these fields!
