Israel

Israel.gif

Activities in Israel in connection with Women in Mathematics include annual one-week conferences for Israeli women in Mathematics in 2015 – 2020 (with a break during the COVID era). The main goal of these is to create a community of women mathematicians from all seniority levels. It is to be expected that this important event will return, after the pandemic is somewhat behind us.
In addition, a lecture series of distinguished women mathematicians is held at Tel Aviv University where an esteemed female mathematician is invited to give a lecture (sometimes two) which is supplemented by a (female) graduate's student presentation of the basics of the topic.
Other events organized by the women-in-math group include several day-events, for example for screenings of films (Hidden figures, Picture a scientist) and panel discussions. A weekly meeting for female students is also an activity which turns out to be useful to many of them. Recently, a project for all women of exact sciences in Tel Aviv has emerged, with "bring it forward" mentoring schemes, called "MEDUYAKOT" in which the mathematics students and faculty in Tel Aviv are also a part. They have a fb page:

Nigeria

Nigerian Women in Mathematics (NWM)

    The idea of Nigerian Women in Mathematics (NWM)  Association was initiated by the Dr. Deborah Olufunmilayo Makinde from the University of Ile Ife, Nigeria in 2008. In July 2010, during the Pan African Congress of Mathematicians (PACOM-2010) held at the National Mathematical Centre (NMC) Abuja, she had the opportunity to share her vision of connecting women in mathematics in Nigeria for the integrated purpose of research collaboration, mentorship, and outreach activities to motivate girls’ interest in mathematics.  This led to Association’s inaugural meeting held on July 8th, 2014, at the Department of Mathematics, University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria. This event was fully funded by the Professorial Chair of Pastor E. A. Adeboye, Department of Mathematics, University of Ibadan, occupied at that time by Professor Olabisi Oreofe Ugbebor.
    NWM holds biennial conferences, the first of which took place at the Department of Mathematics, University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Nigeria in May 2017. The second biennial conference was held at the Department of Mathematics University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Nigeria in June 2019.
    The NWM furthermore organized and hosted the Second Conference of West African Women in Mathematics at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria in 2018 with a week-long school on Mathematical Finance preceding the conference. The event was funded by Committee for Women in Mathematics (CWM) and the University of Ibadan. Participants and plenary speakers were drawn from Nigeria and outside Nigeria. There were career talks for female students drawn from different secondary schools during the conference.
    NWM is registered under the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria with an office in Ibadan. The web page and contact mail of the Association is as follows:

Norway

In Norway there have been scattered initiatives and activities to focus on women and mathematics. During the pandemic 2020-21, an initiative was taken at the University of Oslo to gather women in mathematical subjects in Norway. The result is the network Women in Mathematics Norway (WIMN), where 9 universities in Norway cooperate. From their webpage www.wimn.no: Women are underrepresented in "mathematics heavy" professions. Mathematics is also a choice for girls and women. This network is meant to support and inspire you who are interested in mathematics and/or wonder whether mathematics is something for you. We will, amongst other things, showcase people working with mathematical subjects, announce various events and keep in touch nationally. We  will have an extra focus on women, and welcome men to participate too.

Even though the Math Carnivals are open to the public, the purpose of this math outreach event is to inspire our youth, particularly girls, to study math by showing them real-life examples of Panamanian female mathematicians who are successful in their careers. Since the creation of the Panamanian Foundation for the Promotion of Mathematics (FUNDAPROMAT) in December 2019, the Math Carnivals have been organized by FUNDAPROMAT, as well as Virtual Encounters with Outstanding Mathematicians, in which international female mathematicians share anecdotes of their personal life and their professional journey and then present on an interesting math topic.
