We are thrilled to announce that Twitch is a lead partner of Data Science for All: Women's Summit in San Francisco. The program, developed and managed by Correlation One, occurs from March 5th to March 27th, 2020.
The Women's Summit is a novel initiative designed to support young women as they begin their data science careers. The program provides free training and professional development to 100 young female data scientists, connects them with industry mentors, and helps them land great jobs.
"Learning how to serve communities through science is a joy that should be available to everyone," said Twitch Director of Data Science Brian Weller. "And it's smart business, too: diverse perspectives improve the decisions we make to inspire tens of millions of viewers and creators around the world. Twitch is proud to partner with DS4A to promote equality in data science and a more vibrant scientific community."
