A game-changing initiative to amplify women's voices in sports analytics across the technical spectrum.
Literally game changing
Giving women a platform is integral to competitive innovation
Analytics in sport is about uncovering an edge
The #WinSportsData2023 Symposium will be held at Citizen's Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday, September 16. All are welcome to attend. In addition, we are holding a concurrent project-based data hackathon open to women and non-binary individuals who have never worked full time in professional sports. This competition will take place over a virtual six-week sprint.
As the tech and sports industries grow in importance and influence, women remain heavily underrepresented—to the detriment of all. The Women in Sports Data initiative promotes diversity and equity in sports analytics through the expansion of women's professional networks and the cultivation of cross-sport dialog among industry experts.
The Milwaukee Brewers are excited to offer one deserving contest winner a trip to the Women in Sports Data Symposium! The prize includes a ticket to the Women in Sports Data Symposium, travel to/from Philadelphia, PA and overnight accommodations for one night.
Interested? Submit a short statement up to 500 words describing why this would be a meaningful experience for you. Entries are due August 14, 2023.
