At Cloudera we strive to promote the diversity of our communities and foster an environment where everyone feels they can be their authentic selves. We want to showcase the incredible talent that we come into contact with on a daily basis amongst our teams and clients. That’s why we are proud to share the first of our virtual series of events, where we will be celebrating the influential women behind the data strategies of some of the UK's most influential organisations.
Our first session features Helen Davis, Assistant Director of IT & Digital at West Midlands Police. The second largest police force in Britain, the West Midlands force covers an area of 348 square miles and serves
a population of almost 2.8 million!
Hear how Helen has forged a successful path through an industry where women make up less than 10% of the senior leadership team. In a police force first, Davis has been instrumental in transforming the team's digital strategy, helping to use data in a way which has significantly improved operations. Now hiring its own data scientists, data engineers and visualisation specialists, West Midlands Police even has its own bespoke data ethics committee!
