I was honored to be first recognized as a leader in People Analytics back in 2017 alongside many respected and inspiring colleagues. But unfortunately, in those early days, most of the recognition was aimed more at men than women. So, I decided to change this.
I started a personal challenge to salute 365 women, one for each day of the year. There is only one IWD (International Women’s Day), but for me, every day is a woman’s day. Though the list of my data heroes became longer, I realized it wasn’t enough. We needed professional and inspirational role models of women in the field.
As years went by, the challenge turned from a list to interviews with women who generously offered a glance into their journey to become exceptional practitioners in People Analytics. I hope this version of my challenge is a snowball of inspiration that will encourage more women, particularly HR professionals, to enter the data world of HR.
So, let’s celebrate and share this!
