Minerra's Work in the Community
An effective and successful analytics team require not only a diverse range of technical and business skills, but also people from diverse backgrounds. Despite the need for diversity in analytics teams, research shows shows that only 30% of data practitioners are female.
To help address the gender imbalance in the analytics profession Minerra became a founding partner of She Loves Data in 2016. She Loves Data is an award-winning social enterprise providing free, high quality events and workshops that help women become more data-literate. As of June 2019 She Loves Data has trained over 7,000 women in eight countries.
Minerra supports She Loves Data by providing trainers to lead parts of the Introduction to Data workshops and mentorship to other volunteer trainers. Minerra’s founder, Steve Remington, also serves as the She Loves Data Head of Curriculum.
