We are all acutely aware of the need for the data industry to attract a constant flow of new talent. 

However, a quick glance at any available data will tell us that there’s a huge challenge in ensuring that the industry is able to educate, inspire and attract young minds during their journeys from classroom to employment… 

Rob is joined by Rachel Keane to discuss topics such as:

  • The current disconnects between the education and data sectors.
  • What the Data Inspiration Group is doing to fix those disconnects.
  • How the digdata programme can help Data Leaders make a positive impact on the sector
