On Becoming a Statistician/Data Scientist (309981)

*Dalene Stangl, Carnegie Mellon University 

Keywords: professional development

In Michelle Obama's book "Becoming: A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice" the author guides readers through thoughtful questions to help them discover and put voice to their personal stories. By uncovering one's story, one feels empowered to take further steps toward growth and development. This talk will introduce the audience to Obama's questions adapted and enhanced to include professional development as a statistician/data scientist. Audience members who choose to do so, may continue to participate in a weekly on-line community meeting in which participants answer further questions and share their stories with each other.
