The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) was founded in 1971. This national organization is devoted to supporting individuals (both women and men) interested in promoting the inclusion and visibility of women in the mathematical sciences.

UA’s chapter of the AWM was started in 2017 by then graduate student Keisha Cook. Our chapter hosts approximately four events per semester that are open to all students. Past events have included lunch and learn sessions, guest speakers, and opportunities to learn new skills such as LaTeX. Keep an eye on the department calendar for upcoming events!
