DataWorks Cohort 2

DataWorks Says Farewell to Cohort Two

DataWorks is a work training program in Georgia Tech’s College of Computing. It teaches entry-level coding and data cleaning skills to individuals from the local community without computing experience. The work they do often serves civic organizations and supports underprivileged communities.

DataWorks co-founder Elizabeth DiSalvo says there is a deeper purpose behind the DataWorks model.

“It is about harnessing the untapped potential of communities often overlooked in the digital age. It is a testament to the fact that the true foundation of data science is not just algorithms and equations, but the diverse hands and hearts behind them,” said DiSalvo, an associate professor in Georgia Tech’s School of Interactive Computing.
