I recently had the great fortune to moderate a panel with some amazing people for the DC Data+Women meetup. If you are in the DC area and want to check out the meetup, you can learn more information here.
For this quarter's meetup, we held a recruitment panel discussion followed by speed mentoring and networking. Our panel included Ann K. Emery, Eric Duell, Executive Director of Applied Analytics, Comcast Communications; Emily Vose, Deloitte Consulting, and Meghan Marie Fowler-Finn, of DDOT. The focus of the panel was on recruitment, interviewing, and career transition advice. The panelists delivered great insight and was very generous with their time in talking with attendees afterwards.
There was such good interaction from the attendees and the panelists at this event. Though the panel lasted about one hour, it could have definitely gone on for another 30 or 60 minutes!
I hope these takeaways were useful. If you have any questions, are interested in participating in the next data+women meet ups, or would like a moderator or speaker for an internal workshop on recruitment in the data field, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
