MAY 24, 2018 | Data Science Roundtable: How to hire data scientists when it seems like there are none to hire
Chapel Hill, NC and virtual
How can organizations recruit and retain top talent in data science? And, even though demand for data scientists may exceed supply, how might we build and sustain a diverse, equitable and inclusive organization? Many organizations and leaders don’t try out of fear of failure and a lack of clarity on where to begin. What do we tackle first?

This event is a Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference regional event in affiliation with Stanford University’s Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference.

To register for the event, visit the Data Science Roundtable webpage.
