This year’s virtual event proves one thing beyond doubt. Whether at home or at work (or, for most of us, both…), when it comes to achievement, virtually anything is possible. The event will showcase these achievements, with keynotes and workshops on topics that will change the way you think about the industry.
So join us for a celebration of the best of 2020 – a year which we choose to remember as one of extraordinary accomplishment in the face of historic challenges.

This International Women’s Day, we consider what’s next for women in data and technology. International Women’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate the role of women in data and technology – but while we’ve come a long way, there’s still plenty more to do. While there are certainly more highly visible women in senior data and technology positions, there is still a worrying gender divide, with women still occupying only 26% of jobs in data and 17% in technology.
