Scholarship Description

Diversity in tech and data science is sorely lacking as the chart below shows. Diversity data and research shows that the tech and data science sector recruitment processes reflects unconscious bias. The bias is a key driver of the lack of diversity in tech, including data science, data engineering and data analytics fields.

A critical benefit of QuantHub’s skill assessment platform is its potential to reduce bias in the recruitment process and therefore increase diversity in tech and analytical teams.  We also know that diversity in data science teams is critical to success.  We’re committed to providing employers with a skill assessment tool that enables unbiased and objective hiring processes.

To this effect, we are offering a $1,000 scholarship award to support diversity in the data science field.
