The Data Science Nigeria AI+ community is a community with a responsibility to create a family of people, cultures and learning built on the principles of freedom, equality, unity, and to support the development of budding African data scientists. We achieve more when we work together co-operatively and are united as a group for the good of all. As the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states, “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights, are endowed with reason and conscience, and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.” We understand that we best serve each other when we allow each other the freedom to be as we are; we accept gender equality and respect all our members’ ethnicities. religions, nationalities and/or other legal differences.
Data Science Nigeria is committed to creating a well-meaning experience for all members and will not tolerate harassment of members/partners/clients/sponsors/volunteers in any form. Members violating these rules may/will be sanctioned or blacklisted permanently at the discretion of the Data Science Nigeria disciplinary team.
