Practical Significance | Episode 35: ASA Around the World

The ASA is stronger because of the perspectives and experiences international members bring to our community. This month, co-hosts Donna LaLonde and Ron Wasserstein talk with Ingrid Van Keilegom, international representative to the ASA Board, and Afia Owusu-Forfie, founder and executive director of Coders Who Travel, about initiatives and resources that support international members.

Van Keilegom, a statistics professor at KU Leuven in Belgium, highlights the work of the Committee on International Relations in Statistics. She also addresses initiatives important to our international members, including webinars, accreditation, a reduction in fees for members in developing countries, and the educational ambassador program. Owusu-Forfie shares the story of the nonprofit she launched, Coders Who Travel, whose mission is to deliver applied computer programming knowledge, hands-on experience, and professional networking in Ghana and other emerging regions.

The two also share a snippet of their fascinating and insightful ASA Story (to come) and give their “two cents” as to why someone outside the United States should become a member of the ASA. You won’t want to miss this important episode or Ron’s traditional Top 10, as he offers the “Top Ten Ways to Express the Number 10.”
