"She LovesData – Woman in IT" workshop

(Formally known as Data Girls)

With women accounting for only 25% of all IT jobs, #SheLovesData aims to even the playing fields in a traditionally male-dominated environment by providing data analytics and Business Intelligence training to women, whilst simultaneously addressing the constant technology skills shortage.

Formerly known as Data Girls, #SheLovesData was originally started in the Czech Republic by Czechitas and, to date, has trained no fewer than 2,000 women.

Now, for the first time in South Africa:
