New Blog
Rebecca Schroeder wrote about her experience at the 2023 Data Science Leadership Summit in Boston last month. She highlighted two sessions that she found particularly inspiring: Data Science Organizational Structures and Ramps & Pathways to Data Science. One key takeaway was the importance of convening stakeholders across all industries to foster collaboration and broaden participation in data science education. 
New Book
In collaboration with their community, Data Science by Design (DSxD) which was partly supported by a seed grant from ADSA, CDN members Sara Stoudt and Ciera Martinez published a beautiful new book: DSxD Anthology Vol. 2: Our Environment.

The first two chapters are available for free online. One of those chapters names two key angles that can be used to respond to a multidirectional data movement. The first CDN member to respond to this email with the correct answer will receive a FREE copy of the book, along with Vol. 1 The Future of Data Science. 👀 


Join us on Friday, July 7 from 9AM - 10AM PDT / 12 PM - 1PM EDT, for our conversation with DSxD about what it took to publish their new book.
ADSA Career Development Network talks with Data Science by Design about their new book on July 7, 2023 at 9AM PDT and 12PM EDT
