[Volunteering in Tech]

A partner of YWCA (homeless shelter focused on battling racism and empowering women), who is also an UW alumnus, recently started a tech program that allows their residents to learn technical skills in order to help them fetch more sustainable jobs that can positively alter their financial situations. 

He is looking for volunteers from the DS Club to help aid the tech program: IT-Fridays revolves around learning basic computer skills, Google Drive and Excel. The program will be held on Friday evenings from 6-7pm. This would be a great opportunity for those of you looking for ample leadership experience to build your resumes. Please reach out to Shreya Mittal ( if you are interested in this opportunity. 

[Interview Skills Workshop]

As scheduled, we will have the workshop on interviewing strategies this week, but the event will be on Tuesday instead of our regular meeting time. The workshop will be co-hosted by Undergraduate Statistics Club (excited!), and tech specialist Amy Yang from SuccessWorks will join us to discuss how to stand out in your next job interview. She will also be going through a new interviewing resource SuccessWorks is offering for L&S students. 

Interested in doing analytics projects? Looking for opportunities to work with real world data? Want to help local governments think creatively about issues happening in cities? If the answer is yes, this event is right for you. The UniverCity Year program at UW Madison will come in this Thursday to introduce their program and the potential analytics opportunities. Projects can address a wide range of concerns around sustainability, economic development, education, health, housing and more.
