The Girls’ Angle Support Network is a crucial component of Girls’ Angle’s math educational strategy. The Support Network consists of professional women who use math in their work in some vital way and have agreed to visit the club to show our members how and for what they use math. Each visitor provides yet another reason to study math and a role model. Over 30 such women have visited so far and it has been a dream of ours to create a video series that features these extraordinary women.
Thanks to Jan Rimmel and the AboutFace Media team, people from all over can now meet Girls’ Angle Support Network member and Advisor Dr. Elissa Ozanne, a Decision Scientist who works at the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center at the UCSF Medical Center. It’s hard to think of a more vital application of mathematics than hers.
We hope to raise additional funding so that we can produce more such videos. You can help!
