Join us for an in-depth, lively and thoughtful discussion about data science education.   What it is now, what is needed (and what isn't!), and what it can be in the future.   We have brought together data science leaders from diverse fields and backgrounds to share their thoughts, and we will invite the audience to join in the discussion as well.
