150W: History of Women in the Department


This year marks the 150th anniversary of the UC Regents' unanimous approval of the resolution "That young ladies be admitted into the University on equal terms in all respects with young men." Berkeley Statistics, as well as the rest of the Berkeley community, celebrates this historical milestone by commemorating the year-long 150 Years of Women at Berkeley.

For decades, our female students, faculty, and alumnae have consistently been at the forefront of the groundbreaking work of Berkeley Statistics. Together with their staff colleagues, women of our department continue to leave their mark on their fields, the University, and beyond. In celebration of 150 Years of Women at Berkeley, we are highlighting the stories of some of the women luminaries of Berkeley Statistics who have been lighting the way for over a century.

Special thanks to Jon Bashor, Amanda Glazer, and Lauren Pitcher for bringing this project to life with their biographies and interviews and to Sheila Humphreys for her enthusiastic support!
