Association for Women in Mathematics

Mathematics students, educators, and researchers of all genders may be interested in the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). Founded in 1971 and based in Providence, Rhode Island, this nonprofit organization "is focused on understanding the [career] pipeline for women in mathematics" and notes that "[d]iverse perspectives are necessary to solve complex problems in ethical ways that benefit all groups." On its website, AWM provides links to a number of resources organized by target audience. For example, readers interested in the general state of women in mathematics should visit On Women in Math, where they will find statistics and reports on this topic, as well as profiles of women mathematicians. There are also a variety of teaching and learning resources for K-12 educators and students, AWM's mentor network and funding opportunities for students and academics at the undergraduate level and beyond, and information on career paths in mathematics. Additionally, AWM co-sponsors an annual student essay contest (found under the programs tab) that focuses on "contemporary women mathematicians and statisticians in academic, industrial, and government careers." Under the publications tab, AWM provides PDFs of its bimonthly newsletters, which feature articles, book reviews, upcoming events, and job announcements from a range of institutions.
