Unlike most software and technology events, you'll notice that at the Tableau Conference we've got almost as many women as men in attendance. Women play a big role at Tableau as well. Just check out the recent Huffington Post article featuring Kelly Wright, our Executive Vice President of Sales, on her experiences being a female executive in a male-dominated field.
At the Tableau Conference this year, we'll be featuring many #WomenInData. On the stage in 6E, featured speakers will be sharing big ideas on opening up new product, business, and innovation opportunities with data, adapting to the pace of change in technology, and establishing a career in data science:
