In September 2019, McKinsey urged organizations to create in-house "data academies" to improve their employees' data literacy and prepare them for a data inundated world. Now more than ever, organizations are seeking ways to develop and retain a workforce with the necessary data skills, and internal data academies stand out as an effective method for scaling data competencies.  

In this webinar, we will cover the key steps for building an internal data academy, including defining an learning paths, securing executive support, scaling learning communities, and more. We will also showcase examples from DataCamp for Business customers, who have achieved success with their own internal data academies.
