Helping data science leaders grow, together

We want to build a community of data scientists that are committed to celebrating what it means to be a responsible, effective, inspiring leader.

We aren’t concerned about how long you’ve been in the data science game, your title, background, or education.

What’s important to us is that you’re passionate about learning, celebrating diverse perspectives, and raising the bar for what it means to be a member of the data science community.

The data science leaders of tomorrow are here, learning from and helping the data science leaders of today.

We prioritize representation from all different industries, genders, ethnicities, backgrounds, and years of experience.

So join with an open mind, an appetite to learn, and if you’re up to the challenge, something to contribute to your fellow data scientists.

When you grow, we grow.

Hope to see you there!

Live calls

Each Thursday, 12 pm ET on Zoom

The Data Science Hangout is a weekly, low-barrier get together on Zoom for aspiring and current data science leaders. We like to keep it casual, so there’s no need to register or RSVP to attend.

What happens in the Data Science Hangout?

Each week, host Rachael Dempsey invites an accomplished data science leader to discuss their experience and answer questions from the audience.

The discussion focuses mainly on the human elements of data science leadership. There’s no sales or marketing fluff, just great insights from inspiring professionals.

LinkedIn group

The hangout happens once a week, but you’ll find that the community extends well beyond the hour-long session. A lot of the attendees are on LinkedIn and love to connect with other passionate people in the data science community. We built a LinkedIn group specifically for this community and invite you to join and connect with anyone who inspires you.
