A non profit organization (based in the USA) founded in 1971.

Its purpose is to encourage women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and equal treatment of women and girls in the mathematical sciences.

AWM has over 3,000 members (men and women) from the USA and around the world.

The creation of AWMA was a wish expressed by African women mathematicians at a workshop organized by the Committee "Women in math" of the African Mathematical Union and CIMPA in 2012 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

The Women in Mathematics group has been an active *special interest group* of the Australian Mathematical Society since early 2013.

The group aims to:

- support women to achieve their potential in all areas of mathematics;

- facilitate the recruitment and retention of women in mathematical careers;
- encourage women to have active careers in the mathematical sciences.

This is a British semi-governmental organisation devoted to advancing women's academic careers in Science, Maths and Engineering.

http://www.seio.es/Commission-for-Women-in-Statistics-and-Operational-Research.html

The committee is a national non-profit

academic organization in which women mathematicians who are engaged in

research, teaching and applications of mathematics could share their

scientific research through academic exchanges both in China and

abroad and let their voice be heard by the world not only as scholars

but also as female.

The aims and objectives of the WCWM-CMS are the following:

The aims and objectives of the WCWM-CMS are the following:

1. To encourage women to study and make careers in the mathematical

sciences.

2. To promote women mathematicians and women who teach mathematics in

schools and colleges to exchange their experience and cooperate with

each other.

3. To ensure the academic rights and interest of women mathematicians

and women who are doing relative jobs.

4. To cooperate with other organizations on similar objectives in

other countries.

5. To support women mathematician and women members participating

democratic supervision, and encourage them to join in social welfare

activities.

An international association of women working in the field of mathematics in Europe.

Every other year, EWM holds a general meeting and a summer school. A newsletter is published at least twice a year.

EWM has a website and an e-mail network.

The committee’s remit is to provide advice to the EMS and EWM on scientific questions involving women and mathematics. It advises on scientific topics and speakers for events aimed at emphasizing women’s scientific contributions, such as those organised separately or jointly by EWM and the EMS. It may also be consulted about women speakers for other mathematical meetings or scientific activities, and other similar matters.

Peu de filles dans les filières techniques et scientifiques, peu de femmes dans les métiers scientifiques, en particulier en mathématiques, c’est de ce constat et de la volonté d’y remédier qu’est née en 1987 l’association femmes et mathématiques. Elle compte actuellement environ deux cent membres, pour l’essentiel des mathématiciennes travaillant à l’Université ou dans des organismes de recherche et des professeurs de mathématiques de l’enseignement secondaire ou de classes préparatoires mais aussi des sociologues, des philosophes et des historiennes s’intéressant à la question des femmes dans les milieux

The Joint Committee on Women in the Mathematical Sciences (JCW), founded in 1971 as a committee of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), is now a joint committee of eight mathematical and statistical societies:

The Joint Committee on Women serves primarily as a forum for communication among member organizations about the ways in which each organization enhances opportunities for women in the mathematical and statistical sciences. JCW disseminates information about effective mechanisms and best practices for these enhancements through media such as its website, society publications, and presentations at meetings of the member societies. The Committee also may recommend actions to the governing bodies of the member societies in support of these opportunities.

Areas of attention include, but are not limited to:

- attracting women to mathematical and statistical sciences,
- retaining and advancing women in their careers,
- creating a professional community that is welcoming and supportive regardless of gender,
- supporting the adoption of practices that minimize the potential for bias.

The institution was founded to contribute to the development and diffusion of technology in mathematical sciences to support academic advancement and active exchanges among Korean mathematicians and expand the base of women in mathematics.

Korean Woman in Mathematical Sciences

This is an organization of women (men are accepted as members as well).

Goals: self-organization of the Russian scientific community, professional and moral support for women in science and education, unification of the effort of scientists, academics, teachers and students with the aim of preservation and development of science and education in Russia.

They have a lot of conferences, mainly on mathematics, mathematical modeling, applications of mathematics in other sciences (biology, ecology, economics etc.), and teaching of this subjects at the university level, and also on outreach and interrelations of the scientific community with schools. Questions related to teaching, on all levels, plays important role in activities (there is a number of conferences devoted to modern problems in education etc.) The chair is Galina Riznichenko who is a professor of biophysics at Moscow State, interested in mathematical modeling in biology.

This is an open database for women in mathematics with a connection to Sweden. All women mathematicians, from students to professors, are welcome to register.

If you are looking for a mathematician, it is easy to search the database using search criteria such as degree or research area.

Välkommen till Kvinnliga matematiker!

This is a subject specific group with a very nice website, mailing list etc.

Their website contains a list of women in maths links which are mainly US based…. you may want to include some of these also.
