Kicking off 2018 with lots of networking, a talk from amazing women in data, and for those who are interested - a CV workshop conducted by the Business Intelligence and Data team from Niche Talent! Join us for pizza, drinks, and to meet other women who are passionate about data!
The next HER+Data MCR will be held here at Colony Coworking at Jactin House in Ancoats, Manchester. HER+Data was originally founded in Dublin, Ireland as XX+Data by Karen Church. This group is for women who work with and love data.

Whether you’re a student just embarking on a career or a seasoned data professional, this group is for you. The purpose is to connect and inspire amazing data women with diverse expertise and experience. So if you’re an artist, analyst, scientist, developer, researcher, designer, journalist, leader or entrepreneur, this group is for you. HER+Data is a space where everyone can share their stories and develop. Being volunteer driven events are kept simple and informal. There will be great content, laughter and a room full of data women from various backgrounds. So come along, ask questions, and get inspired!
