HER+Data MCR is a community working to connect, inspire, support and empower the NW UK’s Women in Data! Our goal is to bring together women who work in data or who would like to work in data - to support one another, share experiences and talk data - big or small! Whether you’re a student just embarking on a career or a seasoned data professional, this group is for you. We want to connect and inspire amazing data women with diverse expertise and experience. At this event, we’ll have talks from inspiring leaders in marketing, data science and AI. So come along, ask questions and meet other women who love data!
