Common Data Visualization Mistakes

As data visualization tools become easier to use, our charts become more misleading. While we may not all be designing dashboards that will be seen by hundreds, there’s a high chance in our jobs we will create at least one or two charts. Perhaps we try to fit too much detail on the page, or maybe our aggregations don’t make sense for the audience. This talk will go over common data visualization mistakes, and how we can stop ourselves from making them.

Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

So many women I have the pleasure of working with tell me that they spend years trying to overcome imposter syndrome, or the feeling of not belonging in the role they earned. I myself have dealt with the difficulties of feeling like I don't belong or got into my role by chance. But that's not the case! These feelings are particularly salient for women in fields that are traditionally male dominated, and are compounded when women feel unappreciated or unsupported in the workplace. In this talk, I'll explain how I've personally overcome imposter syndrome and helped hundreds… read more

Highlighting the Hidden ‘A’... STEM to STEAM?

With my talk, I will bring a perspective from the student-side on STEAM. From a young age, I’ve looked to and delved into elements of my Indian culture to learn and implement essential computer science concepts such as recursion and fractal designs. This blend of culture and artistic design that my culture involved was essential to my journey with CS and STEM. Perhaps I don’t do justice to my journey by calling it my journey with STEM. Perhaps I need to—and we need to—highlight the hidden ‘A’. It’s my STEAM journey, as I imagine it is and should be for a plethora of others.

Art of Tooting Your Own Horn - Be Visible and Succeed

Why are men promoted more often than women? Why are there more men in the C-suite than women? Women and other genders often assume that hard work alone will get them noticed and advance their careers. It’s important to recognize that along with hard work, it’s crucial to share our strengths and contributions. This talk is not about bragging but owning our accomplishments. It’s about being proud of those accomplishments rather than deflecting them or undermining them.
