111 Fellows from Underrepresented Communities Start Their Anaplan for All Journey

Diverse, inclusive teams make better business decisions than homogenous teams 87% of the time. Yet despite these clear competitive advantages, research shows STEM fields continue to lag behind other industries when it comes to minority representation.

Black and Hispanic workers are highly underrepresented in data science fields, respectively making up just 8% and 9% of the STEM workforce. Women, meanwhile, account for 25% or fewer workers in computing and engineering careers

As our world becomes more data-driven, companies are increasingly leaning on data professionals to inform and influence these decisions. However, the world’s data and decision workforce is alarmingly non-diverse, leaving a large swath of perspectives and experience untapped.

Anaplan has partnered with Correlation One to make sure that diverse professionals are represented in decision making processes across hundreds of leading Enterprises through Anaplan for All.

The inaugural Anaplan for All cohort minted 45 new Anaplan Model Builders, who emerged into the workforce ready to hit the ground running, thanks in large part to the guidance and support of scores of mentors from the company who stepped up to volunteer their time. Through participants’ tireless efforts and dedication over the course of the program, the cohort set themselves up for success in data science fields.
