One More Data Chat Before the Summer!
We're about to break, but first...
Hi BlackTIDES fam!
We’re about to make like the college students and take a break for the summer. This past season of catering to the Black in data community has come with a lot of growth and change.
We paired down to only offer the newsletter, mentorship sessions, career chats, and technical workshops
#BlackInDataWeek will now be in February, so we can do all the Black celebrations together 🥳
Our executive committee welcomed some new members and said goodbye to others.
Hana Hanfi is our new analytics lead, bringing you all the surveys and helping us shape our content in the coming year
We also want to thank Jarrett Hurms, Odane Dunbar, and Chrystal Parker for their consistent commitments as leads. We’ll miss their contributions, but you can still see them around as community participants to our programming.
Data Career Chats 👩🏾💻👨🏽💻
We mentioned we’re bringing you more community oriented content so you can drive what you get from us! The first of these events is finally here 🎉🎉
Every month, we’ll be offering data career chats. These are free and open-ended office hour style sessions where you can come in and ask an executive committee member questions about your career. We have a wealth of knowledge with domain experience in health care, informatics, policy, technology, data science and MORE!! So stop by and don’t be shy. If we can’t answer it, we’ll share it in our Slack community so you get more perspectives!
Speaking of Slack, you’ll have to join to get updated on the details, along with the link to join. The first data career chat will be held on Saturday, May 13th 2023 from 11am - 1pm US Eastern Time with Sia Seko. Sia is our strategic operations lead and a data engineer. She also holds office hours every Saturday, so don’t make this the last time if you stop by!
A note about our code of conduct: Be respectful of people’s time and boundaries. We’re here to build community, so be graceful as you seek guidance and engage. Any behavior that doesn’t align with our values will result in removal from our Slack.
And as always… Bags and Flowers!! 🤑💰💐
