Let’s take a peek at Intersectionality

The Bristol Women in business charter

The Bristol women in business charter have just released their great new website and have an event coming up that anyone interested in understanding more about intersectionality and how to best support everyone in the industry.

Looking at EDI through an intersectional lens

We all deserve to have our voices heard; our faces and experiences reflected in the culture and media and our unique needs addressed through relevant policies. However, when we fail to incorporate intersectionality into our everyday practices and policies we leave parts of our communities behind.

Intersectionality describes how different elements of a person’s identity can be discriminated against, with negative outcomes. If you know of anyone working in D & I and with experience of intersectionality then they welcome any speakers to join them.

Data Science MSc Event

Saturday October 16, 2021 is our Data Science MSc Open Day. There’ll be a limited number for the live event but we will run it as a hybrid event for those unable to make it. We’re still finalising a place and speakers but anyone interested in being involved feel free to contact us on info@wthub.org, we’d really love to have some speakers talking about how great data science is when its used for good in industry.
