Event Details

The world of data is hot. With 90% of data currently in existence only been created in the last two years, job opportunities within data analytics are becoming more in-demand than ever.

From SQL and R databases to coding, to presenting and drawing insights from data in tools like Tableau, navigating a career in data can be a little daunting.

For many, the thought of becoming a data analyst is met with questions such as,

“Isn’t data analytics very technical?” and

“Do I need to know how to code to be a data analyst?”

If Data Analytics sounds like an area you’re interested in, let us help you take out the guesswork, and grow more confidence in taking the leap by exploring:

  • What is data analytics?
  • What the role of a data analyst entails
  • What other roles are there in the data industry?
  • What tools, knowledge, and expertise you require to get started in the industry

Presenter

Tess Guthrie

Founder and Director at WhyHive

After completing degrees in pure mathematics and philosophy Tess Guthrie worked in both the not-for-profit as well as private sectors as a researcher and analyst before launching WhyHive in 2018.

Tess worked in the Philosophy and Cognition Lab at Monash University in interdisciplinary consciousness research, speaking at the Australiasian Cognitive Neuroscience Society Conference in 2018. She also worked on the Individual Deprivation Measure team at the International Women’s Development agency to support them quantitatively in building a new holistic measure of poverty.

While working in the not-for-profit sector she recognised a need for consulting expertise that was often not affordable to organisations. Even when investing in advice and analytics could greatly improve their effectiveness. WhyHive was built on Tess’s passion for gender equality, and works to both engage women in STEM and offer support to charities committed to empowering women and ending gender violence.
