About DSSe

DSSe is an initiative to elevate and connect the voices of women in data science and encourage companies to set a better habit to generally consider women for data-intense roles.

DSSe is important because the field of Data Science is still young — for it to fulfill its true potential, we need voices that reflect the full experience of the world we live in to contextualize our data-derived insights.

By elevating women and other underrepresented groups, we have the opportunity to build a truly incredible and thriving field that influences decision-making at every level in a meaningful way.
