Health and Safety at DataConnect 2022

Your health and safety are important to us. Women in Analytics is complying with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and relevant state and local authorities in an effort to provide a safe and healthy environment for DataConnect 2022 attendees during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

However, COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease and it is not possible to eliminate the risk of spreading or contracting COVID-19. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present, and efforts to mitigate the risk of exposure to COVID-19 may not be sufficient to prevent spreading or contracting COVID-19.

All DataConnect participants have to acknowledge and agree to the COVID-19 Release and Hold Harmless agreement.
