With the explosion of sophisticated technology in the twentieth century and beyond, many female mathematicians, statisticians and data scientists are making essential contributions to human endeavors, from bioinformatics to spaceflight. We all know women who have shattered stereotypes, pursued their passions, and persisted even when things got tough. In this talk, I’ll share some of their stories and my own journey from college statistics professor to host of the PBS miniseries, “NOVA Wonders”. By bringing public awareness to the data-driven work we do, we can inspire the next generation and increase our Power in Numbers.
