What we're about

Data + Women + Triangle (https://www.meetup.com/DataPlusWomenPlusTriangle/) builds relationships among women in analytics, statistics, and data science in the Triangle of NC (we call these women data scientistas) through the scientistas themselves teaching one another about data and sharing their enthusiasm in various casual and collaborative formats. Watch our two-minute video. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hfLfH0s48Y)

The scientistas are a community and network of women in the Triangle of North Carolina (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) seeking to foster discussions of unique to analytical women that will ultimately lead to efforts that empower women in the data industry through tangible initiatives. Scientistas can increase their career karma through choosing an Opportunity for Connection (https://www.meetup.com/DataPlusWomenPlusTriangle/messages/boards/thread/51305606).
