May Meetup and Mingle at Metis

Tuesday, May 16, 2017 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Metis Chicago, 1033 West Van Buren, 3rd Floor, Chicago, IL

We’ve heard great feedback from our workplace events and we are keeping that ball rolling in May. This month we are excited to announce Metis as our sponsor. Metis has been generous enough to provide, food, drink, and a great meeting space.

Who is Metis? They are a different kind of bootcamp for sure, and one that we are excited to learn more about while eating, drinking, socializing, and unwinding at our last Spring event of 2017 (get ready for Summer!).

Metis is a data science educator that graduated it’s first Data Science Bootcamp in Chicago in April 2017!  Metis has been graduating Data Scientists in NYC since 2014, San Francisco since January 2016 and is kicking off its first bootcamp in Seattle this June!

One really exciting thing about Metis is its strive for diversity in the tech industry.  One of the ways that Metis is doing that is through its offering of scholarships.

Metis offers scholarships to women, members of underrepresented demographic groups, veterans or members of the U.S. military and members of the LGBTQ community.  The scholarship is for $3,000 scholarship towards their Metis Data Science Bootcamp tuition.

Metis is located right off the Blue Line near UIC so it’s an easy trip for anyone who uses their Logan Square/Wicker Park address as an excuse for sporadic attendance. Let’s celebrate diversity and make this a big one!
