We’d like to thank each and every one of you who attended our first of a series of events on Women in Big Data at Verizon Ventures in San Francisco in mid-January.

Women in Data Science audience

The session focused on women in data science, and we had an opportunity to meet amazing women data scientists from Dropbox, Pinterest, Salesforce, PayPal, Visa, MapR, Nvidia, Maana, GE, Verizon, SAS, and Q-Sensei, plus an analyst from Gartner, and more.

Read a great write-up by one of our panelists, Jill Dyche, that was published in CIO.com.

Here are also some pictures from that night. The panel was recorded and you can view it here.

We plan to organize an event on women in big data every quarter so please stay tuned for another one in April. We’d love to see you all again.
