Data Leadership Events
LO’s meetups are an opportunity for community members to lead conversations about data leadership topics important to them. If you are interested in leading a meetup or suggesting a topic, see more information on our community page. This is a great opportunity to start speaking about data topics in a low-risk way with an amazing community supporting you!

LO’s Tool Talks are an opportunity for community members to learn about emerging data tools. They consist of a product demo and lots of time for community questions about the tool and uses cases, with both the tool’s team and actual users available to answer questions. If you are interested in leading a tool talk or suggesting a tool for us to feature, see our community page for more information.
LO’s AMAs are casual interviews with some of our amazing community members, who tell their stories about building and leading data teams, career progression, and their own data journeys. This series is on hold, but if you are interested in helping us revive AMAs, please speak up in #virtual-events in our Slack community!
