ASA GivesBack: Stories from the Fields 

1 July 2022 No Comment

ASA GivesBack is part of the professional development arena of the American Statistical Association. It’s an organization in which young professionals having a background in and love for statistics come together to give back to the statistics field. They learn, share, and care for each other and want to reach out to students, graduates, early-career professionals, and any statistics enthusiasts.

Each of the six ASA GivesBack team members comes from a different background or culture. They recently conducted a panel discussion in which they talked about ways their jobs are engaged in giving back to public health, society, and drug development, as well as helping to diversify the field. During the discussion, they also focused on several misconceptions that predominate in their fields and suggested ways to break those myths.

The GivesBack team is also committed to philanthropic activities and will be hosting a food drive at JSM in Washington, DC. Drop off a nonperishable food item in the bins outside the EXPO or at the GivesBack community table. All donations will go to the Capital Area Food Bank.

To learn more about the GivesBack team and their activities, stop by their community table or reach out on Twitter.
