What we're about

We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month! Event pages are created about 3-4 weeks in advance but future dates are scheduled on the technwuk calendar (https://technw.uk/calendar.html).

HER+Data MCR is a Meetup group which brings together anyone who identifies as a woman and has a connection to data - whether they work with data, would like to work with data, and/or simply have an interest in data! The scope is intended to be broad to include as many women within STEM as possible while also maintaining a focus on the topic of data - we talk data science, analytics, research, visualisation, software, applications and experiences women share working in male dominated environments. We have 550+ members whose backgrounds range from academia to industry, students to CEOs, neuroscientists to idea implementers. We meet once a month (on the 2nd Thursday), provide ample time for networking, and showcase 2-4 women in data speakers who talk about their career paths, role models, challenges faced and data projects that they work on. We also conduct masterclasses a few times each year on topics such as CV writing and interviewing techniques to empower women to progress in data roles.

HER+Data (http://herplusdata.org/) is a space where everyone can share their stories and develop. We're volunteer driven so we keep our events simple and informal. There will be great content, laughter and a room full of data women from various backgrounds. So come along, ask questions, and get inspired! And if there are specific topics that you would like to see discussed then please let us know. We are always happy to explore new ideas and new collaborations. HER+Data was originally founded in Dublin, Ireland as XX+Data by Karen Church ( https://twitter.com/karenchurch ) and the Manchester chapter was established by Rachael Ainsworth ( https://twitter.com/rachaelevelyn ).
