She Talks Data brings together women in the Twin Cities area who work with data. We aspire to create a comfortable and supportive environment to drive authentic dialogue and establish meaningful connections through small-group gatherings. Our goal is to build a close-knit community of women (and men in support of women) who can come together to grow professionally and personally.
Our policy on male attendance: It is not our goal to exclude or discriminate. However, to serve our mission as effectively as possible, we have implemented a policy that gives women attendance preference over men. Men who sign up will be placed on a wait list and will be notified when (if) a spot opens up for them.
We sincerely appreciate male support and hope this policy is viewed as a fair compromise on a delicate subject.

Invisible Women shows us how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. It exposes the gender data gap – a gap in our knowledge that is at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination against women that has created a pervasive but invisible bias with a profound effect on women’s lives.
