CWM sponsors a number of events and activities with the aim of encouraging women in mathematics, with priority given to developing or emerging countries. Our main focus has been aimed at establishing or supporting networks at the continental or regional level. Other events, workshops and projects have also been supported. Events sponsored by the 2017 funding call will take place in Brazil, Canada, Chile, India, Iran, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Tunisia, South Africa and Vietnam.
The 2016 events took place in Colombia (Latin America), India, Indonesia (S. and E. Asia), Kazakhstan (Central Asia), Mexico (Latin America), Senegal (West Africa), Tunisia (North Africa). In 2015-16, similar activities were also funded in Kenya (Africa) and Brazil (Latin America).
The following activities and events have been sponsored by CWM as a result of the 2017 funding call.

This conference brought together women students, college and university teachers and early-career researchers with mathematicians, especially women mathematicians to exchange mathematical ideas and share their views.
A major goal was to enable junior women mathematicians to interact with their senior colleagues, both individually and in small groups, as well as to present their work. Nalini Joshi was a distinguished visitor.
