Virtual Summit Theme: Analytics Culture

About

The Women in Analytics Virtual Summit is an interactive and engaging 2-day event with talks from industry experts covering topics on data organizational culture shifts, a data hackathon, tutorials, roundtable discussions, networking, and a career fair.


The virtual summit is an opportunity for women in this space to network virtually while learning from a multitude of perspectives of the brightest members of our analytics community.

Join us to learn and collaborate virtually until we can reconnect at the WIA Conference later in 2021!

Theme & Tracks

Summit Theme

As companies are transforming to use and rely on data to make more informed decisions, they also face a cultural shift. This is arguably the hardest part about adopting analytics as a core business function. 

Tracks

Ethics: This track covers the ethical concepts organizations must consider and adopt to ensure they can effectively identify negative consequences of building and using AI.

Data Integration & Empowerment: This track will cover aspects of empowering everyone at an organization to build, test, use, and manage analytics. Having a data and analytics team alone will not show the return organizations are looking for. This track will cover different frameworks to address these challenges.
