South Africa Relaunch: DataDriven Innovation across Industries

22. 9. 2020 @ 13:00 - 14:00 UTC+2


Inspired by South Africa Women’s Month theme “Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights for an Equal Future”

She Loves Data South Africa aims to empower women in the workforce and build human capacity across South Africa. Join us for our first virtual event where members of the She Loves Data South Africa team will be joined by She Loves Data Global Expansion Lead, Renée Gallant, to discuss their experience as female leaders in our data-driven world.

Our panelists will explore the relevance of data; how it impacts the economy and the capacity it has to empower women and drive equality in the workforce. As with all SLD meet-ups, audience participation will be encouraged through an interactive Q&A session. Finally, learn how you can get involved with She Loves Data, build skills, and embark with other strong South African women on your own data journey.
