CWM sponsors a number of events aimed at establishing or supporting networks  for women in mathematics, preferably at the continental or regional level, and with priority given to networks and individuals in developing or emerging countries, see here. The 2016 events will take 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 meeting gathered women in mathematics having leadership positions in order to propose action plans for the balance inclusion of women in education in particular as academic mathematicians. It also futhered the creation of an organisation of Latin American Women in Mathematics. Contact Gabriela Araujo  gabyaraujop(at)

The meeting was held during the 7th Asia Mathematical Conference AMC2016. The forum aims to establish a network of women mathematicians in Asia. Contact Budi Ruchjana budi.nurani(at)

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.

    This was the first meeting of AWMA for the Western African region and aimed to establish a network for women mathematicians in northern Africa.  Contact Saïma Khenissy  saima.khenissy(at)

The aim was to expose women of North Eastern and Eastern India engaged in teaching and/or research to quality research in different areas of mathematics. It was one of a series of mini workshops being organized in different parts of India on the initiative of Indian Women and Mathematics (IWM). Contact Riddhi Shah riddhi.kausti(at)
