The Talent Pipeline for Data Science in Government: Strengthening the Workforce for AI, Data Analytics, and Data Governance

  • July 15, 2021
  • 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Virtual


Overview

Government needs talented data scientists, programmers, and analysts to successfully and ethically implement and employ modern data applications. The talent pipeline for federal data scientists is fragmented and a perennial issue for federal data managers seeking to hire and keep skilled employees. Seemingly small, but significant steps like creating a job series to reflect data professionals or providing professional development to larger challenges like retaining talent, stunt efforts and, ultimately, solutions. During this Data Coalition virtual event, co-hosted with DLT Solutions and in partnership with Pluralsight, participants heard from federal leaders, academics, and specialists who worked to creatively develop a replicable talent pipeline.
