Keyrus Canada will proudly participate in the "Women and Diversity in Data Science" panel discussion through the voice of its Director of Marketing and Human Capital, Elodie Palluet. Join us on September 23rd, from 5 to 8 pm.
Montreal, September 21, 2020: This second year of partnership between Keyrus Canada and HEC Montreal Data Science Club is off to a great start, with the participation of Elodie Palluet to the ''Women and Diversity in Data Science'' panel, organized in collaboration with IVADO.
An event that resonates even more in the light of the recent social movements.
Given the resurgence of social movements campaigning for greater equality (Black Lives Matter and #METOO are just two examples), it is now essential that all actors in our society get involved. This panel will seek to demonstrate the need for an inclusive approach in our organizations and will focus particularly on how to implement concrete measures, starting from the recruitment process.
To this end, this roundtable will bring together various actors from the data world such as lawyers, ethicists, technologists and professionals from the community, and will be moderated by Mariloue Daudier, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Advisor at the Institute for Data Development (IVADO).
Keyrus Canada is honoured to participate in this exchange through the voice of Élodie Palluet, Director of Marketing and Human Capital,
"It is a great honour to participate in this roundtable. I am proud to say that, today, Keyrus is an important player in the IT industry’ diversity inclusion and valorization. The organization of this type of event allows us to collectively strive for more equality. It is by keeping talking about it that real progress will be seen," says Élodie Palluet.
