This online event will take place on Tuesday February, 27th, 2024 at 17.30-18.30.

The event will begin with each of the panellist giving a 10-minute overview of their career histories, how they managed their careers, and insight into their current roles involving data science. This will be followed by an open Q & A segment.

The careers panel session and following Q & A segment is a great opportunity to learn more about career transitions – what motivates people to change career directions? What are effective strategies for making a change? What were the obstacles? What is the panel’s advice for overcoming obstacles? – as well as ask the questions that matter most to you. 

It’s also a great way to gain insight into the varied world of careers in ‘data science’ – as you can see, our panellists all work for very different organisations, and arrived at their current roles via very different paths. 

Please note: this session will not be recorded.
