Centennial Campus Calendar
Math, Art, Kung Fu and Having Fun No Matter What You Do
- This event has passed.
Melinda Thielbar, a data scientist at Fidelity Investments, will take you on a whirlwind tour of her varied career and talk about how the skills she built at each step led to the next. From the day a college recruiter told her she was bad at math, to the minute she walked across the stage for her Ph.D. in statistics, you’ll learn how to enjoy where you are today and not let it stop you from leaning into where you want to be next. She’ll also discuss how to know when it’s time to change direction and how to take what you’ve learned with you to the next step. Thielbar will illustrate each step with artwork and a math equation, showing how each can be used as a communication tool and that there’s no reason to be afraid to try either one.
