Women make up only approximately 15% to 22% of all data science professionals, according to various surveys from WEF, Global Gender Gap Report, and BCG research. Women are often discouraged from pursuing tech-related careers because of the gender pay gap, poor career growth, male-dominated office culture, lack of access to mentors, and gender bias in recruiting. On July 28th, 2022, join us on LinkedIn Live as Ms. Deeksha Anand, Founder of Onestopdata and Data Analytics Manager at ION, and Ms. Neha Shah (She/Her), the co-founder of Qween Network LLP, will discuss the career for women in data, the myths related to tech careers and how you can get started with a data career.

After graduating from Baruch College, (City University of NY), having specialized in Finance and Accounting she worked with various corporate like GE, Phoenix Realty Group, BNP Paribas etc. in the Finance Sector. This early exposure to some of the most renowned corporations brought her face to face with the acute gender disparity in Indian Corporate culture, and she wished to bring equal opportunities dreams into reality. She always had a sense of social responsibility at her heart, and she would often volunteer to take care of terminally ill patients as well as spend time mentoring at Light House foundation. Having tasted the fruits of satisfaction while helping the not so fortunate early on in her life, Neha decided to set up QWEEN with two of her friends with same passion.
