Workshops to Build Girls’ Interest in Careers in Data Analytics

The nonprofit girls + data is on a mission to increase youth data literacy and provide middle school girls with hands-on learning opportunities in STEM careers in data analytics. Through hands-on workshops, girls learn about data analytics: What is data? How is data being used? What are different careers in data? They will be introduced to people in careers that reflect actual real-world applications—for example, people analyzing operational data to help make business decisions; people designing databases to store customer transactional data; people designing data visualizations that will illustrate who is looking at what types of content on Netflix. From 2017–2019, this all-volunteer organization has hosted 17 events across 12 cities that have taught more than 450 middle school–aged girls. Future events include a Data Camp that will take place at Netflix headquarters in Los Gatos on May 16, 2020, and a “Women in Datapanel that will come together virtually in November 2020. Teachers and students will find details about these and other upcoming events on the girls + data website.
