Established in 2018, Glamorous Ladies and Data (GLAD) is an initiative aiming to cultivate inclusion and diversity in the Data Science space. By connecting people from all around the world of all levels in the data science spectrum, we are able to address some of the most pressing issues and concerns on the minds of aspiring data scientists and working professionals. The hope is that through mentorship, we will slowly change the landscape of the Data Science field (and STEM as a whole) to one that is more inviting to all.
Our Mission: Our mission is to help foster growth, confidence, and leadership in minorities aiming to pursue a career in data science.
Our Plan: Through weekly group mentorship discussions, quarterly challenges, 1:1s and more, we hope to slowly move the needle to increase representation of minorities in data science.
Our Vision: Mentorship is a two-way street: by dedicating only one hour a week, you gain a community, learn from like-minded individuals and support growth for all aiming to succeed in an ever-growing field.
