Chicago, IL – January 9, 2023 – Burtch Works and Women in Data (WID) are pleased to announce a new partnership with a shared mission of providing women with the resources, support, and networking opportunities they need to succeed in the world of data science and analytics. As leading organizations in their respective fields, Burtch Works and Women in Data are committed to providing valuable insights and resources to support the professional development and advancement of women in their data and analytics careers.
Burtch Works is the national leader in total talent solutions with a specialization in data science, analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), data engineering, business intelligence, predictive analytics, product development, quantitative business analytics, operations research, web analytics, credit/risk analytics, marketing research, cloud platform technologies and much more.
As industry pioneers, Burtch Works prides themselves on their approach as trusted advisors and career advocates by providing subject matter expertise, compelling career opportunities, and leading information and research on trends in this industry. Burtch Works also leverages their propriety first party data and career coaching expertise to offer a range of resources that directly address the gender pay gap. These resources are specifically curated to allow for increased salary transparency, including salary and market trend data, career development advice, and the annual Burtch Works Salary Report(s) that contain extensive compensation data, hiring, and market research.
Through this partnership, Burtch Works and Women in Data will collaborate on a number of initiatives designed to support and empower women in the data and analytics industries. Burtch Works will make a $5,000 donation to Women in Data, which will result in the creation of 41 scholarships for additional members to join and have access to the plethora of resources that Women in Data and Burtch Works have to offer. All recipients of this scholarship can also apply for a free one-year Women in Data membership.
In Q1 of 2023, Burtch Works and Women in Data have a shared goal of placing five Women in Data members into roles that align with not only their skills and qualifications, but also their interests and personal goals.
Michael Butts, CEO of Burtch Works says, “I’m very excited about our partnership with Women in Data because of our shared values and mission. Inequality, and specifically gender pay gaps, still exists in our industry for women and ethnic minorities. Our data shows that inequality becomes even more prevalent at specific levels throughout a data professionals’ career and having a diverse workforce correlates with strong performance. Together, our partnership with WID allows us to be proactive and to do the hard work to counteract these negative trends before they happen. We are also excited to help increase STEM engagement at all levels and create more advocacy for a career in data and analytics. We know there is work to be done but we are thrilled to partner with WID to move the needle and to create a world that works better, for everyone.”
“We are excited to announce our partnership with Burtch Works, a renowned leader in data career placement,” said Sadie St. Lawrence, Founder and Executive Director of Women in Data. “This collaboration will provide our members with the opportunity to find the perfect role to continue their growth and leadership in the field. We are also grateful for Burtch Works’ generous $5,000 donation to our scholarship fund, which will support education and community building for those who need it most!”
Burtch Works and Women in Data will kick off their partnership with their first shared workshop and networking event on January 30th where attendees and Women in Data members will have the opportunity to connect with other professionals within data science and analytics and learn more about the initiatives planned for the partnership. Beverly Wright, PhD, CAP, Head of Data Science Solutions at Burtch Works will be leading the discussion on “How to Become a Data Science & Analytics Rockstar in 2023.”
