Join us on Thursday, April 27, for an exciting Meetup as we introduce the upcoming Datathon with Jumpstart Refugee Talent (JRT) taking place on May 5-7! This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about JRT, their mission, and how you can contribute to their objectives through data-driven analyses and projects.

The Meetup will begin with an introduction from the organizers, followed by a live presentation on JRT and the goals of the Datathon. Jumpstart Refugee Talent will dive into the objectives and provide an overview of the available data. We will also share information on how to access the data, how the datathon connects to our Micro Projects, and walk you through the logistics of the datathon.

The Meetup will also include a Q&A session, giving participants the opportunity to ask questions about the data and datathon.
