The first-ever Arizona Women’s Symposium in Mathematics (AWSiM) will take place on Saturday, November 5 – Sunday, November 6 at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott.
The conference will have plenary research talks and contributed talks where women mathematicians in Arizona can share their work. The symposium will include a workshop on teaching and equity in math courses, and discussions on recruitment and retention of women in mathematics. We hope that faculty, instructors, and some students will attend. Limited funding is also available to support some participants. Please share with other faculty.
The 5th National Mathematics Summit will be held in-person in Atlanta, March 16 and 17, 2022, as a NOSS pre-conference event, sponsored by NOSS, AMATYC, Carnegie Math Pathways/WestEd, Charles A. Dana Center, Mathematical Association of America, Achieving the Dream, and Paul Nolting. For more information and how to register, please see the summit flyer.
Though the AMATYC Conference in Phoenix has ended, be sure to check out the Local Events Site to see the amazing outcome of the Community Project!
Thanks to the generosity of AMATYC members, the Kamanzi Secondary School will receive $7770 to help students. These funds will wipe out the outstanding debt owed to the school for books and materials for 100 students, purchase uniforms for 50 students, and buy feminine sanitary products for the female students! Words cannot adequately express the hope and relief this gift will bring to the families of these students, who struggle to put food on the table, let alone pay for school supplies and uniforms. Moreover, the entire Kamanzi community benefits when inequities are dismantled with books and materials put into one pool for everyone’s use, and for girls in particular who miss school due to insufficient menstrual products.
The AMATYC 2021 Phoenix Local Events Committee thanks all who donated to this year’s AMATYC Community Project.
In Fall 2021, Phoenix College will host the ArizMATYC “Non-Conference” on Friday, October 8, 2021. Since Phoenix is hosting AMATYC in Fall 2021, this will be a scaled-down meeting with an ATF Meeting, an AMATYC planning session, and an ArizMATYC Business Meeting! Participants can choose to attend in person or virtually.
