Metis is celebrating its Advancing Women in Data Science Scholarship.
Check out the scholarship information here:
Join us for food and drinks as the Metis team celebrates women in data science with local women's tech groups, the Seattle tech community in general, Metis students/alumni and Metis staff.
This event is open to everyone.
Metis is committed to creating a culture of inclusion and diversity within the exciting and growing field of data science.
The Advancing Women in Data Science Scholarship is a full-tuition scholarship for people who identify as women and are interested in pursuing a Data Science career.
At Metis, we believe in encouraging and enabling women to enter the data science field. Since we started in the Fall of 2014, we’ve given more than $700k in scholarships to women attending our bootcamp. However, the gender disparity that exists within the industry, and is still prevalent within our classrooms, has prompted us to expand our efforts.
In 2018, women still only represent 15% of the workforce within the data science field 1, and there is still a huge gender disparity in tech 2 overall. This is why, in an effort to help women pursue a career in Data Science, Metis is offering 4 full scholarships 3 to women in the Seattle and Chicago (2 in each city) area whom have applied and been accepted to the Metis Data Science Bootcamp.
Metis (https://thisismetis.com/) accelerates data science learning for individuals, companies, and institutions through corporate training and accredited, immersive bootcamps.
The Metis bootcamp curriculum is designed and delivered by highly educated and industry-experienced practitioners, and all bootcamp graduates receive hands-on career support until they’re hired. Campuses are located in Chicago, New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle.
On the corporate side, Metis works with large organizations who want to upskill their teams in data science and analytics to gain efficiencies, remain competitive, and improve their bottom lines. Metis is proud to be backed by Kaplan, a global leader in education.
Metis is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender identity, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof).
We do not tolerate harassment of students, staff, or visitors in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any event including talks, workshops, parties, and other online media. Individuals and groups that do not abide by these rules will be asked to leave and, if necessary, prohibited from future events.
If you have any questions or you're made to feel uncomfortable by anyone on our campus or at one of our offsite events, please let one of the staff members know right away. The matter will be taken seriously and promptly addressed.
