Our group is wholly committed to connecting data-driven women in San Francisco! DDW was developed as a home for inspiring Bay Area women who impact every aspect of the data that makes our world run & our industry thrive. We know talking about data can be intimidating, but the members of our group make data, approachable & our events fun.
We aim to aid in directly projecting the voices of inspiring women in our industry who contribute daily to our greater community. We create a platform for individual stories, & organizations who truly care about diversity & inclusion, & anyone who believes in the support, empowerment, inspiration, & inclusion of women & accessibility for women in the workplace.
The organizers of this group possess 20+ collective years in recruitment & career coaching & are committed to sharing all of our learnings with the DDW community. Each event includes access to free resume reviews, interview training & feedback, & offer/salary negotiation.
Our Event Host: Planet (planet.com)
Founded in 2010 by a team of ex-NASA scientists, Planet is driven by a mission to image the entire Earth every day, & make Earth's changes visible, accessible & actionable.
Planet started as a small team of physicists, aerospace & mechanical engineers in a garage, using the cubesat form-factor to inform the first designs of the Dove satellite. Just three years after our first satellite entered space, we now operate the largest constellation of Earth-imaging satellites...ever.
Our satellites are collecting a radical new data set with endless, real-world applications. Whether youre measuring agricultural yields, monitoring natural resources, or aiding first responders after natural disasters, our data is here to lend businesses & humanitarian organizations a helping hand. Planet believes timely, global imagery will empower informed, deliberate & meaningful stewardship of our planet.
Belong at Planet!
We truly believe in bringing our whole selves to work every day. We are happier, more confident & more excited to do great things - such as build satellites that will help make life better on earth - when we are free to be our true selves. We believe that we make greater contributions to our work, our teams, & the company overall when we include diverse perspectives. Our goal is to build teams from all different backgrounds.
Planet is deeply committed to building a diverse, equitable & inclusive workforce. We are an equal opportunity employer who welcomes & considers qualified applicants regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, age, religion, national origin, citizenship, pregnancy status or any other differences.
Don't let the confidence gap stop you from applying to Planet.com!
