Data Science is the Future. But data science is only as diverse, fair, open as the concepts and methods on which it builds. How can we make data science a fair representation of who we are as global society? We would like to initiate a discussion among data scientists - experienced researchers together with early-stage researchers – on this topic. With this event we would like to give impulses for a lively conversation on careers in data science. Biographies & careers are rarely linear; this is especially true for careers in new and innovative fields of research.

By participating in the summit and organizing a pre-event, we want to send a signal for diversity, equal op-portunities and open science; enable networking for researchers regardless of gender, origin and research field. We promote equal opportunities in and through research with data.
Our experts from different research fields will talk to each other about their profession as researchers and with the audience. With short statements of 3 minutes they will give insight in their individual career paths.

The discussion is moderated by Alexandra Rosenbach, Helmholtz-Association
