Women In Data Science: “We Built A Conference To Become A Movement”

2018 has brought a new focus to the careers, excellence and issues of working women, and this extends into the fields of tech and data science. As we approach the Women in Data Science (WiDS) conference on March 5, 2018, it is important to take a moment and reflect on where women are now in data science, and where they need to go.

Dataconomy’s MD and WiDS ambassador Berlin, Elena Poughia, sat down with Ann Rosenberg, Senior VP of SAP Next-Gen, and Alexa Gorman, Global VP of the SAP.io fund to discuss this topic. Both Rosenberg and Gorman are leaders at SAP who are empowering each other and other women in tech and data science. As leaders, they recognize the importance of their unique philosophies and mindsets. “When I moved to the United States a couple of years ago after many years working in my global role from Denmark, and I began to have my team more closely around me, I began to see how women around me were treated,” said Rosenberg.
