#BlackInDataWeek is a free, online data conference taking place November 16-21, 2020. Straight from their website, #BlackInDataWeek is:

A week-long celebration to (1) highlight the valuable work and experiences of Black people in the field of Data, (2) provide community, and (3) educational and professional resources.


I can’t possibly list all of the reasons why this event is awesome. Just look at the description above, it’s full of goodness! The organizers have created a very exciting event structured to provide community, support and growth for Black people working in data.

Also, the sessions are on fire! I’ve added nearly all of them to my calendar. They offer a wide range of content from career to technical sessions and geared towards all levels of experience.
