More than 100 women and men attended the second Data + Women event last Thursday in the auditorium at Vontobel to get inspired by different female speakers working with and around data from various industries. The event was kicked-off by a dialogue between Libby Duane Adams, Co-founder and CCO at Alteryx, and Caroline Knöri, Head Corporate Human Resources at Vontobel.
Libby and Caroline were discussing about the modern analytics journey that is taking place in their organizations and how it has transformed the role so far. Also diversity was a big topic, stating what initiatives are already in place at Vontobel and Alteryx and what can be done to further support women in tech roles. Giving advice on having a successful career by Libby and Caroline, the audience was being told to “not being scared of taking risks” and “pursuing a role which you really enjoy”.
During the second part, Anaig Marechal, Software Engineer at Microsoft, presented her Machine Learning project “AI for Good” at Microsoft for which she analyzes children’s eye movements using data science to assess reading troubles showing how data science can be used to help disabled people in general. This was followed by a networking apéro to further exchange ideas, share career expertise and just to get to know each other.
