Show Notes

This week, Hugo speaks with Reshama Shaikh, about women in machine learning and data science, inclusivity and diversity more generally and how being intentional in what you do is essential. Reshama, a freelance data scientist and statistician, is also an organizer of the meetup groups Women in Machine Learning & Data Science (otherwise known  as WiMLDS) and PyLadies. She has organized WiMLDS for 4 years and is a Board Member. They’ll discuss her work at WiMLDS and what you can do to support and promote women and gender minorities in data science. They’ll also delve into why women are flourishing in the R community but lagging in Python and discuss more generally how NUMFOCUS thinks about diversity and inclusion, including their code of conduct. All this and more.
