In 2024, CWM call received 39 applications, of which CWM decided to support 10. Some of the selected projects aim at supporting continental networks for women in mathematics, such as the Asian-Oceanian Women in Mathematics (AOWM) Workshop in New Zealand and the series of activities organised by the Gender and Diversity Commission of UMALCA (CGD-Umalca) within the Latin American and Caribbean Congress of Mathematics. CWM is supporting networking and visibility activities for women in mathematics in Brazil, India, Malawi, Mexico, Namibia and Senegal, and two research workshops geared towards establishing research networks for women, in Burundi and Uganda. Depending on the nature of the project, CWM funding goes to infrastructure, travel expenses and accommodation support for women participants from developing countries.
