CDN Roundup



Hi all,

As you can see from this message, we're trying something new to keep you in the loop about what's going on with the CDN. We're going to send an email newsletter every month highlighting community news and upcoming events. The newsletter will also share career-related resources around the web and a summary of relevant info from our Slack community.

Let us know what you think by replying to this email or posting a message on the #cdn Slack channel.


Our CDN Community Call is tomorrow, Oct. 21, at 2:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM PT. The topic is: Skills - what skills do you want to teach and what skills do you want to learn to advance your professional goals?
We re-launched our Career Panel series! The first panel will take place next week on Friday, Oct. 28, at 2:15 PM ET / 11:15 AM PT. The panel will feature four current and former data journalists who work/have worked at The New York Times, LA Times, Politico, Vox, and CNN. Learn more about the panelists here. Please share with anyone who may be interested!

Reply to this email and let me know if you're interested in participating in a future panel.


In the future, I would like to use this section of the newsletter to highlight members of the CDN so you all can learn about each other and connect. While I'm waiting on you all to let me know who to feature next (please volunteer or nominate someone), I'll take this opportunity to introduce myself.

👋 Hi, I'm Stella Min. I'm the new Community Coordinator at ADSA. 

Background: I earned my Bachelor's in Economics and Sociology from the University of Colorado, Denver. I went on to earn my PhD in Sociology from Florida State University, where I received the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship to study the association between student loan debt and the transition to adulthood, especially focusing on demographic behaviors such as marriage, cohabitation, and childbearing. From there, I was hired as a data scientist at IBM Watson Health, where I used real-world data to model health economic outcomes such as the financial costs associated with certain diseases and medical treatments. I left IBM and began working with small minority-owned businesses during the pandemic. During that time, I helped start and manage a CDC-funded Diabetes Prevention Program for women from historically and structurally excluded groups.

Current role: My passion for community management led me to ADSA, where I now have the opportunity to work with you fine folks. I'm excited to get to know you all better and I'm committed to doing what I can to help boost your careers and facilitate meaningful connections!

How to connect with me: My twitter handle is @OhhStellar. You can also connect with me on LinkedIn or schedule a one-to-one in my calendar. If you're going to our Career Support Workshop next week, be sure to say hello!
