he Tech industry, although a hub for innovation and creativity, lags behind when it comes to the diversity of its workforce. Not only is this detrimental to women, who are missing out on the rewarding work available to them, but also to the industry itself. Indeed, research by McKinsey shows, that a more diverse workforce is more likely to flourish .
This is one of the reasons why here at TrueCue, we are running a campaign to provide information, advice and up-skilling opportunities to encourage women to seek careers in this exciting industry.
The first such event in this series is a Hackathon, which we are proud to be partnering on with Women in Data.
A Hackathon is an event in which participants team up to solve challenging problems with limited time. In our case, the task will be to analyse a dataset on COVID19. Through participating, you will have the opportunity to improve your analytics capabilities and presentation skills, as well as speak to women working in the Tech industry – all while learning more about the global pandemic through data.
