Roisin McCarthy founded Women in Data® in 2015 after being disappointed by the diminishing number of female applicants for data jobs and she is now recognized as an expert in talent acquisition and retention. Her endeavours with Women in Data have cemented her as an authority on gender representation in the world of data. Women in Data has grown to 25,000 members and Roisin continues to drive inclusive and innovative methods to engage women in data careers and advance key initiatives such as Women's Safety, Women's Health, and Girls in Data.
In this episode, Roisin shares her story of how she started the movement in 2014. We unpack more about the community as well as the positive impact of having more women in the industry, the need for inclusive environments and flexible policies, and what companies and individuals can do to promote diversity in their workplaces.
