🙋♀️ ...and how to survive and thrive as a data team of one

💿 MDS Fest 2.0 comes to a close: watch the replays

And just like that... we closed out Day 5/5 at MDS Fest 2.0 on Friday 🎊

This was our biggest year yet with:

🎤 55+ speakers

👋 1100+ attendees

📺 30+ hours of high quality data talks

There is so much content to comb through these days - we wanted to silence the noise and curate content made for and by the data community. This year's speaker lineup was impressive, with data teams from companies like Netflix, Disney, Capital One, Vanta, and so many more.

If you missed any talks, register at for all the replays - there is a treasure trove of knowledge waiting for you.

🙋 Going solo: succeeding as a data team of one

Tune into episode #17 of Women Lead Data, recorded live at MDS Fest with Julie Beynon and Lindsay Murphy!

This episode includes audience Q&A, and covers Julie's career at Census as a data team of one, and her transition from marketing to data. We also touch on managing imposter syndrome and how to manage people pleasing tendencies.

It's a great episode for anyone looking to transition into data from another role, and anyone who has dealt with imposter syndrome, and all that comes with it!

Tune in

And that's all for now! See you next week 👋
