ABOUT THE EVENT

On June 28th 2021, we hosted the Data Science for Everyone Commitments Event to highlight the importance of increasing access and quality of data science in elementary and secondary schools and to showcase high impact commitments from our inaugural Commitments Campaign
 
The event included remarks from policymakers and doers in the data science space, showcased impactful commitments, and opportunities for partnership and networking. Following the live program, we hosted a live happy hour through Zoom. To connect with commitment-makers and other coalition members, and to make sure you’re the first to know about other upcoming events, join our Slack community.
