Launch of New International Women in Mathematics Website


In March 2013  the  Executive Committee of the International Mathematical Union (IMU)  approved the establishment of an Advisory Group for  Women in Mathematics, charged with creating and overseeing  a section of the IMU website entitled Women in Mathematics (WiM). Opportunities for women vary widely from

country to country and a main aim is to enhance the participation of women in all mathematical communities.  The  new WiM  site will be launched at the International Congress of Women Mathematicians on August 12th just prior to  the International Congress of Mathematicians.


The site  includes information about organizations, people, events, resources and initiatives of interest to women mathematicians world-wide.  In order to maximize the usefulness of this site, we welcome suggestions from the community.  Indeed, advice concerning items for inclusion is important to us.


The Advisory Group  may be contacted at info-for-wimatmathunion [dot] org
