The lecture series, supported by Mathematical Association of America, is intended to encourage and support female students in their pursuit of science, technology, engineering and mathematics degrees ( IC Women In Math ). Students learned how their studies in mathematics can translate into careers in QUALITY!
Thirty people attended the talk (including 18 females), and the lecture was very well received. Ten women stayed after for dinner and 2 hours more Q&A.
In a thank-you letter, one of the faculty described Hadassah’s speech as motivational and inspiring as well as informative; not only to the students but also in helping the faculty’s understanding of current industry state.
