Talithia Williams, a professor of mathematics at Harvey Mudd College, delivered the keynote address at the 2018 Diversity Forum. Williams is a prominent advocate for engaging more people from underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and math — the so-called STEM fields. She co-hosts the TV series “NOVA Wonders” on PBS.
During her keynote address, she wove stories from her journey as a woman of color in a STEM field with practical advice from her experiences at Harvey Mudd College.
“We had to be really intentional to diversify our campus,” she said.
