Most data scientists plan exit in 2020, Women in Data conference hears

The WiD conference organisers and consultancies DataTech Analytics and Mango Solutions canvassed 907 UK data science professionals in an online survey in October 2019. 481 were women (53%).

The results show that more than half of the respondents plan to change jobs next year. When asked what is the greatest professional difficulty they face, more than a quarter (29%) cited lack of support from managers and leaders and nearly half (44%) said bureaucracy was a hindrance, while 28% complained of a lack of access to the right tools to carry out data science.
