Ready to meet amazing women and learn from their experience with a glass of Heineken? As part of the Dutch Data Science Week, we are bringing you a special R-Ladies edition! We are having a panel discussion on finding your way into Data Science. Moving into or making a career change into a new and fast changing field like data science comes with great uncertainty and endless questions. Come join us, as we bring together a panel of professionals with diverse backgrounds to discuss what it takes to succeed in Data Science. We'll explore their experience, trainings, their typical day, and problems that they are facing and solving day in day out.

17.00- 17.30 Welcome
17.30 - 17.45 Intro Rladies & Heineken
17.45 - 19.15 Panel discussion & Breakout sessions
19.15 - 20.00 Socializing

This meetup is not only for the beginners in Data Science and Data Engineering, but also for more advanced members, who already work in the fields for some time. You will get a first-hand experience in how other women handle challenges in their daily work, how they communicate, and how they build the working process. After the panel discussion (~45 min), we will move to smaller groups, where you will have the chance to discuss and learn from someone nearby and envision your professional life from a new perspective.

A good mood and enthusiasms to listen to others.
