  2. Greetings Sue, I also heard you on the radio. You talked about learning Pro Math in College. I have tried to look it up but came up short. Please advise were I can get more information on the subject. Thank you Alfred

    1. Hi Alfred, the course was called Polymaths, it was certified by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. I don’t know if it is still running anywhere? You could try Googling it for info.

  3. Hi Sue, I work at a refuge and your story could be really inspiring to the women here- what words of wisdom would you like to pass on?

    1. If I can get out of that situation so can other women. I gave a talk about leaving #DV at Grace Hopper conference last year. I’ll find the link and post it 👍🏽
