The African Women in Mathematics Association (AWMA) was created at AIMS South Africa on July 19th 2013. Marie Françoise Ouedraogo (Burkina Faso) was elected president. 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 Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, in 2012.
AWMA held its first General Meeting in Kenya in July 2015.
