Info: Data is literally more valuable than oil today. Yet it is often perceived as non-accessible. As a result the reality of most data teams in the commercial space is pretty bleak; there is barely any diversity. There is no one path to being in data. You can chop and change in several different paths. Ora will be holding a short workshops to plot different career pathways into the ever elusive space of Data Science!
