Inspiration from “hidden figure”, Dr. Gladys B. West, who made seminal contributions to the global positioning system (GPS)
The Earth is not a perfect sphere. Indeed, it’s shape is far from round, and that complexity must be accounted for to achieve accurate GPS. My presentation chronicles the contributions made by Dr. Gladys B. West, an African American mathematician. Born in rural Dinwiddie County, Virginia in 1930, Dr. West studied mathematics at Virginia State University before joining the Naval Proving Ground in Dahlgren, Virginia, where she led the effort to accurately map the surface of the Earth, leading to centimeter precision in modern GPS systems. Her remarkable achievements against all odds are an inspiration to us all; however, this talk is not just a tale of individual exceptionalism, but rather a reminder of the lost opportunity incurred by society overlooking the talents that women and minorities can bring to the technological workforce. Indeed, this motivates our goal to make the Virginia Tech Innovation Campus the most diverse graduate tech program in the country.
