Why We're Here
The 2020 Harnham US Data and Analytics Report found that only 3% of Data and Analytics professionals identified as Black, and even fewer in leadership positions. And a Forbes 2017 data science diversity gap study reported that ~36% of General Assembly data science students were women. If that’s true across racial demographics, then Black women account for about 1%. We’re BEYOND that 1%.
