Women and Non-Binary People in Data

17th April 2023 @ 9:00 am - 20th April 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Women and Non-Binary People in Data

Equate Scotland, in collaboration with The Data Lab and CodeClan are delighted to offer this free 3.5 day online experiential learning event for Women and Non-Binary People in Data. This course provides an introduction to data and the software used to analyse it.

Attendance at this course will help increase your awareness and understanding of opportunities in data by developing and enhancing your skills and abilities so you can apply data skills in the real world.

So, if you are a woman studying at undergraduate or college level, a career changer or a professional woman in STEM looking to reskill or upskill with an interest in data skills, then this opportunity is for you.  No previous knowledge or experience of working with data is required in order to complete the course.  Join us on this virtual live experiential learning course to demystify data!

Advances in digital technologies and the use of data are rapidly emerging.  Scotland’s digital technology sector is growing at twice the rate of any other sector and there is an unprecedented demand for ICT and digital technology professionals and people with big data and data science skills.  There are an estimated 10,000 digital technology vacancies every year in the UK and over 70,000 new jobs will be created in Scotland alone by 2022.  Data is the future!
