Keywords: mentoring ; statistical education ; statistical capacity building ; statistical collaboration ; statistical consulting ; non-technical skills

The LISA 2020 Program educates statisticians and data scientists from developing countries to become effective collaborative statisticians and helps them create statistical collaboration laboratories to propagate this training to more statisticians and data scientists, collaborate with researchers to solve problems and make decisions, and engage in statistical outreach to improve the statistical skills and literacy of their community. The goal is to create a network of 20 statistical collaboration laboratories in developing countries by 2020. Find out the current progress of the 5+ stat labs in the network and how you can help sustain the labs or expand the network.
