WXMLer Blanca Viña Patiño on the Sound Bite Podcast

WXMLer Blanca Viña Patiño recently appeared on the UW Sound Bite Podcast. In her words, “Women who love mathematics, like myself, constantly struggle to thrive in environments where they constantly feel a need to prove themselves. I wanted to do this podcast to hopefully shed light on some issues that are occurring at the undergraduate level and encourage women to get involved in mathematics groups that stand for diversity and inclusion. I believe all mathematicians, not just those who are women, need to make an effort to address sexism and promote respect in all academic levels. Sharing my experiences with The Daily podcasts was a great opportunity to voice these issues and provide some ways to address them.”
