Data Science For All / Empowerment is an online program that offers the world’s best data analytics training to talented participants from Black, Hispanic, LGBTQ+, and other underrepresented

Data skills are an increasingly important function of every type of job, not just technical ones. Employers are requiring these skills for roles like finance, sales, marketing, and product, among others, as well. Our program teaches the data skills that professionals across all industries and positions need.

The program is taught by world-class instructors from Harvard and connects participants to an amazing peer network and mentors.  

DS4A / Empowerment is 100% free for participants, because we want the best talent to participate. The program is funded by corporate sponsors, who target graduates for job opportunities. Past participants of our programs have graduated to work at partner companies like Google, Lyft, Deloitte, JP Morgan, Twitch,
Citadel, Memorial Sloan Kettering, and Johnson & Johnson.
