In collaboration with the local chapter of Women in Big Data Meetup and our continuing effort by Databricks diversity team to have more women in the big data space as speakers to share their subject matter expertise, we hosted our second meetup with a diverse and highly-accomplished women in their respective technical fields as speakers at the Bay Area Spark Meetup at Databricks.

For those who missed the meetup, moderated by Maddie Schults and Yvette Ramirez, below are the videos and links to the presentation slides. You can peruse slides and view the videos at your leisure. To those who helped and attended, thank you for your participation and continued community support. And to those who wish to be part of the diversity, join your local Women in Big Data chapter—and be a champion.
