What is DataWomen?

DataWomen is a network that supports and empowers DataWomen and data friends by creating a community of open discussion and mutual learning. We define DataWomen as women that are interested in or work in technology. Their data friends are their male and female allies and advocates.

InterWorks is proud to support this effort, which includes regular webinar presentations and discussions as well as a mentorship program and online community.

What is DataWomen all about?

Creating an inclusive community for discussion and mutual learning. We do this:

  • Directly and indirectly, by involving and supporting DataWomen and data friends (male and female allies and advocates);
  • By supporting women as women, through discussion and advancement of relevant topics;
  • By supporting women as professionals; and
  • By fostering a community to exchange ideas and information, get practical support, and build networks.

We are always on the lookout for great people to sit on panels, be mentors, and help us find and share cool content. We want people who are passionate about developing a good environment for DataWomen to thrive.

If you think you can be that person, please get in touch with Azucena Coronel or Beth Kairys. We’d love your energy and your ideas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone, male or female, who wants to support women in data.
Women working in and around data, at any point in the pipeline (whether you’re crunching numbers in excel, or doing fancy data science work in python). DataWomen are also those with an interest in data and perhaps are working towards a career in a tech field.
Anyone who wants to! We imagine you might get the most out of this if you were a woman working in, or planning to work in, data in some form. However, we welcome everyone, especially anyone wanting to be a better manager, advocate or ally for the DataWomen in their life.
Trick question! Everyone is welcome! We welcome anyone and everyone that wants to be involved. We do ask that every person that participates to show respect and kindness. We have a zero tolerance policy in order to ensure that this is an open and inclusive space.

  • Run regular webinars with great people covering all sorts of awesome topics. These are intended to show off some awesome people and help us discuss issues of relevance to women and as professionals working in and around data. We’ll bring some data, some great presenters, and some great topics to get you thinking.
