Pollicy is holding its first meeting (of many to come) with a small group of ladies that have a keen interest in using data for their work, for research, for insights or just for fun. The aim of the meetup is to bring women together to explore different open-source tools, discuss the challenges within the statistics/data science field in Uganda, support each other in our data journeys and ultimately, to have a good time together.
Be sure to bring your laptops as we’ll begin our explorations into data from meeting 1!
