With the desire for agility, scalability, and processing power on demand, financial firms are looking to consume market and alternative data in the cloud. Once data is available in the cloud, they can combine data sets, build trading models, minimize risk, and gain a competitive edge. Sources of data available today range from historic and real-time market data to unstructured data such as satellite imagery, sentiment analysis, and tweets. Join us to understand: What data is out there? How to find it? How to bring it into your cloud-native environment? What does it take to create really good data sets?

Gender power dynamics are rapidly shifting. Is it still true that there is an inverse relationship between power and likeability for women? Balancing our changing expectations of power with society’s unconscious assumptions and perceptions of powerful women has become more complex. Determining how we step into our power in hierarchical organizations while maintaining (and being rewarded for) our skills of collaboration and relationship building is a crucial challenge. Cynthia Zeltwanger of the Women's Leadership Lab will explore the framework of Relational and Goal Oriented Power Dynamics and learn how to effectively integrate both for maximum impact.
