“If we don’t do something, we run the risk of women being unwanted, uneccesary, and not needed when it comes to the future innovation that can change our world.” ~Phylecia Jones
TEDx Talk: All Girls are Great at Math
There is no greater honor than giving a TEDx talk. In 2018, I had the privilege of taking the stage with TEDxCherryCreek in Denver, CO to launch the beginnings of a movement that All Girls are Great at Math. With fewer women entering and being represented in the world of tech, finance, and science, I knew it was time to take action with some simple words to encourage change. The talk was inspired by being a woman in STEM, serving as a Budgetologist for solo business owners, and seeing so many women say they are not good at Math. My passion is to change that dialogue and build confidence with girls and women when in comes to pursuing a career influenced by Math.
