why girls + data?

Only ~55% of women felt informed about the career opportunities in data science

Companies are in search of data scientists but female STEM students aren't considering a career in the field

Only 48% of women students surveyed agreed that data scientists spend time solving real-life problems

15-22% of all professionals in data science-related roles are women 

No other dedicated data programs for girls exist today

Women make up ~55% of university graduates but account for just over 1/3 of STEM degrees

student testimonial

"I really like how girls + data events give  real-life examples  of how to find and organize data. It's so much easier to understand than just reading a manual. I also like how the hands-on experiences give you a taste of what you can do with data in life."
