ACCELERATOR

Welcome to Accenture’s Women In Data Science Accelerator. This free 6-week course combines industry-led lectures, hands-on workshops and career guidance to help transform your passion for data and analytics into a career as a data scientist.

Inspired by research that highlights a distinct lack of women pursuing careers in data science, we have designed this programme especially for women.


WHAT THE COURSE OFFERS:

  • The skills and confidence to become a successful leader in data science

  • A clear understanding of the career opportunities available in data science

  • A storytelling framework to effectively communicate the influence and impact of data on business and society, and the value you bring as a data scientist

  • A chance to advance your technical skills, through classroom-based training and practical project work

  • An opportunity to connect with other women developing their data science careers at all levels
