Catherine will do a short demo and afterwards participate in a panel discussion with representatives from Etsy, Neo4j, and Radian on Wednesday, September 27, 2017, from 5:30 pm - 7:45 pm ET at the Philly.com building on 8th and Market Street.

“I’m excited to speak alongside these incredible women and share how we use data to inform decisions at The Meet Group,” said Catherine Cook Connelly, VP of Brand Strategy for The Meet Group. “Though it is impossible to have all of the data we want, our goal is to track everything we can to improve and monitor retention, engagement, and user acquisition efforts.”

The Philly New Technology Meetup supports the vibrant and growing Philadelphia tech community by helping to build a sustainable technology industry that drives innovation, economic growth, and creates positive change for our local communities. This innovative talk will explore how the panelists entered into the data profession, what types of data technology they currently use in their positions, and how the impact of cultural and gender-based issues have affected their careers.

The speakers are women, but the program is for everyone in tech and data. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit: https://www.meetup.com/Philly-New-Tech-Meetup/events/239992746/
