Chicago women are active engagers, innovators and leaders in Big Data. And our ranks and influence need to grow! We bring valuable experience, perspective and ideas to drive business results and change the world. Chicago Women in Big Data’s mission is to:

1) Connect women in big data, data science, and analytics to build a community of leaders in all things data!

2) Inspire women data-crunchers and hackers in Chicago and grow our numbers (more women and more promotions).

3) Increase the visibility and showcase/celebrate the incredible work Chicago women in big data produce - as leaders and practitioners.


Connect women in Chicago who work in and love big data and analytics; promote discussion and idea-sharing amongst all big data leaders and practitioners; and showcase female thought-leadership from local and international data superstars.
