Women in Analytics Session


After a brief introduction to the Women in Analytics’s initiatives, our featured speaker, Jessica Hastings from Facebook will share how her experience with managing a high performing analytics team is a lot like training for an Ironman. In this presentation, Jessica will share both of these pursuits complement each other. From setting reasonable goals up front, to making tough decisions about when to reset expectations, and celebrating accomplishments, Jessica will share the lessons she’s learned from endurance training that have helped her at work.
