Audience and Lecturer

PRESENTERS AND SPEAKERS

We welcome scientistas sharing about projects or career experience

There are many motivations for being a speaker: maybe you need to get your message out and demonstrate your expertise, or maybe you need a trial audience for a presentation at your day job. Either way, we are here to be a great audience and learn.

 Code of Ethics for Speakers

All speakers for the Data Scientista Society are asked to abide by the Code of Conduct. By agreeing to speak at the Data Scientista Society event, they agree to hole the following values.

Integrity

We believe the best way to build trust between a Data Scientista and her company, a Data Scientista and her manager, and a Data Scientista and her customers, is through honesty and integrity. We believe in presenting the true picture to our employers and stakeholders and reporting errors as soon as possible, so that everyone would know that if a Data Scientista says something, it can be believed.

Growth Mindset

We believe the best way to be the best version of our professional selves in data science is to always be curious about new algorithms, new methods, and new tools. We believe that learning never stops; and if you decide to become a Data Scientista, the first thing you can do is to embrace the fact that you will always be learning new things.

Best Practices

We believe the best way to do what we are doing has probably already been invented and is known to the community. This is why the community develops “lessons learned” which it calls “best practices”. We believe that following best practices in data science, software engineering, and security will make our code, our designs, and our models the best they can be.

TOPICS AND AUDIENCE SIZE

The largest online meeting we have ever had was attended by 50 people. The limit of attendees is 250. A local meeting may be held online, but with the target audience of the local group.

Given the Society's mission, speakers are encouraged to produce their best talks at times, but at other times take the opportunity for experimentation and growth. So we suggest the following formats:

  • A memoir-style talk about the context, highs, lows, challenges, achievements, and inspirations in your career: your story.

  • Is there a data woman that you are a fan of? Tell us about her.

  • A technical talk, either overview or how-to information

  • A project presentation

  • A talk about career growth in the data field

  • BONUS any of the above with a woman partner!

Particularly for local meetings, we encourage a tone of

  • Casual

  • Friendly, nurturing, neighborly

  • Educational


RECORDING
It is at the speaker's discretion and the organizer's descretion if the talk is recorded and posted on the YouTube channel
