He encouraged the graduates to recognize their role not just in post-analysis but in shaping experiments and decisions that define the future.

He charged the graduates to uphold the highest standards of ethics and integrity, recognizing the human experiences behind every data point and reminded them of the collaborative spirit that defined their time at the foundation.


He encouraged them to embrace challenges with resilience, make statistics accessible to all and work in diverse teams.
