Introducing the Maven Family Leave Challenge

Looking for real world data to practice your data visualization skills?

Need a new project to showcase on your portfolio?

We have just what you need, including another chance to win a free annual all-access membership to Maven Analytics!

We’ve just added a new dataset to the Data Playground with information on parental leave policies from companies across various industries.

To go along with this release, we’re launching the Maven Family Leave Challenge and giving away a free annual all-access membership to the winner.

We’ll share more about the challenge details below, but first let’s talk about the data…

About the dataset

  • This dataset contains a csv table with 1,601 records, one for each company

  • Each record contains the company's name & industry, as well as crowdsourced information on the paid & unpaid weeks off they offer as part of both their maternity & paternity leave policies (when available)

How to play the Maven Family Leave Challenge

For this challenge, you'll be working as a Data Visualization Specialist at an online business journal. Your role is to create charts, visuals, and infographics as supporting content for articles.

As part of Women's History Month in the United States, your company is writing a piece on parental leave policies across the business world and they need you to create an impactful visual using the data you collected.

Here’s how to submit your entry:

  1. NEW STEP: Upload your entry as a portfolio project on the Maven Analytics platform (learn more)

  2. Share a LinkedIn post mentioning @Maven Analytics and the hashtag #mavenfamilyleavechallenge, with an image or link to your project

  3. Complete the official challenge submission form to make sure you are entered for a chance to win

Make sure to follow Maven Analytics on LinkedIn for updates on the challenge and invite your connections to play along!

How to win

As part of the updated Maven Analytics challenge process, all submissions must be uploaded to the Maven platform to be eligible for a prize. Every element on the project page will be considered and evaluated for judging, including the project title, embedded media, images, and description.

Finalists will be chosen by the Maven team based on insights, creativity, design, visualizations, and overall storytelling ability. The winner will be selected from the finalist pool by the Maven team, via live voting.

What you can win

As part of the Maven Family Leave Challenge, we'll be giving away 1 annual all-access Maven membership completely free of charge. The winner will get access to all of our Excel, Power BI, Tableau, SQL, Python, and Machine Learning courses, all with direct support and coaching from our expert instructors.

No purchase is necessary to participate. As always, this challenge is open to both current Maven subscribers and everyone else.
