Expanding Access to Data Science Careers

Each discussion in the panel series will address a key component critical to the development of a strategic plan to extend and expand the early-stage Data Science pipeline:

  • To understand the need for a career pathway that begins with high school and community college students.
  • To review existing policies in Massachusetts that support efforts to prepare more students for Data Science careers, and discuss what additional policy support might be needed.
  • To learn from programs that broaden participation in other disciplines and apply those best practices in developing outreach and support programs for a more diverse community of students.
  • To discover current initiatives for high school and community college students and discuss how they may form the basis of the early-stage Data Science pipeline.
