Iorganized by Go Global Gateway and Kavli IPMU. The audience were undergraduate students in several departments. Yukari Ito (Kavli IPMU) introduced the film and gave a lecture on the mathematics and her experience abroad too.

Promoting women in mathematics

A panel discussion on questions of diversity and inclusion that will help identify relevant initiatives to attract women to research in the mathematical sciences, and more particularly at IHES.

Panelists will be:
Eva Bayer-Fluckiger, Professor Emeritus at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne,
Kathryn Leonard, presi

МАТЕМАТИКА, through a land of mathematics

The project МАТЕМАТИКА, through a land of mathematics tells stories of ten Russian women from nine different cities who contribute, directly or indirectly, to the research in mathematics. Each one of them, in her unique way, is engaged into mathematics.

Russia is a very special place for mathematics, and this project is an attempt to sketch an impression of modern Russian mathematics in many of its different aspects.

May 12, a Celebration for Women in Mathematics, year 2021

May 12 was chosen for the Celebration of Women in Mathematics because it is the birthdate of Maryam Mirzakhani. The initiative was  proposed by the Women's Committee of the Iranian Mathematical Society and voted by a vast majority of attendees to (WM)², the World Meeting for Women on Mathematics on last July 31 in Rio.
