This seminar introduces R packages and functions that help users import, transform and manage their data in preparation for analysis.   The seminar focuses on the “tidy data” philosophy encouraged by the “tidyverse” collection of R packages, but draws on other packages for useful functions as needed.  Topics include data import, transforming variables, string functions, missing data, merging datasets, reshaping data, grouped data processing, and looping.

NOTE: All researchers are welcome to attend.

This seminar will walk you through the basics of executing and interpreting a binary logistic regression model using the logistic procedure in SAS. We will discuss methods for assessing goodness of fit, performing model diagnostic as well as graphing results. The seminar will also briefly discuss alternative models, which are appropriate when the sample size is too small or the events are too sparse, including exact logistic and firth logit regression.

NOTE: All researchers are welcome to attend.

The next UCLA Conference to Advance Women in Technology will take place in March 28, 2018. Again, we will convene 200+ leaders and stakeholders, both men and women, for a collaborative conference and workshop sessions to reframe the discussion about the gender and diversity gap in the tech sector. The conference will explore ways to advance women of all races, backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses in the tech sector.

Conference Agenda

4:00 – 6:00 pm     Emerging Technology Entrepreneurial Fair with Networking Reception

This year’s conference will address three keys areas where we expect to see lasting change:

  • Impacting workplace culture
  • Leadership development and empowerment
  • Tech entrepreneurship and digital innovation

We are also doing something different this year by adding an Emerging technology entrepreneurship fair showcasing startup/born-digital tech companies with one or more female founders in mature stages featuring tech products or services available for enterprise adoption.
