All Things OSU IT
In the spring of 2022, the University Information and Technology Executive Team led by Chief Information Officer Andrea Ballinger nominated six women from OSU to attend a five-week EDUCAUSE series for central IT workers called Women Advance Technology. Throughout the series, the cohort had a chance to reflect on the challenges, obstacles and opportunities they had encountered in their careers. As they continued to meet, they saw an opportunity to create a community of support and provide more resources for women working in IT roles at OSU. Because as they compared notes and shared their experiences, they realized that the barriers they’d encountered weren’t unique. It wasn’t “just me.” Other women were having parallel experiences, leading to self-doubt, burnout, retention issues and additional stress at work.
On April 18, UIT’s Data Team hosted the first annual Data Day at OSU, featuring 18 speakers and panelists from across the university who shared key insights on working with data and unlocking its possibilities. Lizzi Wolfram, member of the Data Team and Data Day planning committee, shares a look back at this year’s Data Day, key takeaways and what might be to come for next year.
