Women in Big Data (WiBD) started as a grass-roots organization in 2015 with the mission to inspire and connect women in big data careers. Starting with 15 members and one chapter in San Francisco's Bay Area, the WiBD community grew to over 17,000 members across 37 chapters and six continents spreading inspiration, growing networks, and promoting member success on an ever-expanding platform.
In 2020, the organization filed paperwork that shifted Women in Big Data from grassroots to non-profit, expanding funding capabilities and laying a foundation for a new mission. The founders realized that, as important as inspiration and connection are, their ability to move the needle on a future in which gender and resources don't limit equitable participation is finite. A new mission was outlined to cultivate tangible opportunities; unlock latent potential, act as a catalyst for advancement, and empower equity allies of any gender.
Women in Big Data is an inclusive community who appreciate that, in the broadest sense, big data is a tool being harnessed at every level, in every industry today, to shape tomorrow. Broader diversity among leaders and practitioners will improve the use and function of big data, ensuring a future that's better for all of us.

Navigating your career isn't easy — but you don't have to do it alone.
We can help you reach your goals by matching you with a mentor who has been in your shoes and overcame similar challenges.
Get to the next level in your career with the PowerToFly mentorship program.
PowerToFly mentorship program is on a mission to help women get into tech, grow in tech and get to executive roles.
We are missioned around empowering you to overcome your challenges and get the support you need from a mentor who can help you fulfill your goals and career aspirations.
Why do I need a mentor?
The practice of guiding and advising a protégé has long been proven to work to increase promotions and career satisfaction and decrease turnover in the mentee pool. And it's what underrepresented groups want, too: our What Women Want report found that 82% of women surveyed wanted their companies to offer more professional development opportunities.
Mentorship is one of the most cost-effective ways you can invest in training and promoting diverse talent. You probably already know who the rising stars at the junior levels of your organization are — you just need to set them up with someone more senior who can help them navigate the transition to a leadership role.
