Datathon for Retail Action Network
February 9 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Calling all Data for Good volunteers: Dust off your laptops, and bring your skills and enthusiasm. Data for Good Vancouver is holding its annual datathon and sign up starts TODAY. Share and spread the word; we hope to see you in February!
▶ WHEN: Saturday, February 9 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (if you can only make it for a portion of that time, you’re still welcome to come)
▶ WHERE: Chinatown House (https://chinatownhouse.ca/services)
▶ WHO: Retail Action Network (https://retailaction.ca/)
This year we’ll be helping the Retail Action Network, which supports labour rights and equity in the workplace, by analyzing and visualizing survey data for their annual employer ranking system. You can learn more about this useful resource here: https://retailaction.ca/grade/. They’ll come with specific data-related problems our volunteers can tackle, along with a chance to explore and gather insights on your own.
This is an exciting collaboration extending our partnerships outside the Lower Mainland to Victoria, where the Retail Action Network is based. It will also be a chance for our many new members to meet one another and network for the first time, as we’ve grown considerably since our first datathon back in 2018.
Food and beverages will be provided courtesy of Chinatown House.
