IMU CWM is leading the project "A Global Approach to the Gender Gap in Mathematical and Natural Sciences:
How to Measure It, How to Reduce It ?" funded by the International Council for Science (ICSU).
The project website, with a summary, up to date news and information, is here.

The main initial goal set by CWM was to help establish and foster networks of women mathematicians especially in Asia, Latin America and Africa. To this end, it has made two calls offering sponsorship, in 2016 and 2017.
The multi-country or multi-regional networks which have been fostered or initiated with CWM's help are:
Organisation for women in Latin America is ongoing and it is hoped that the formation of a formal association will be announced at the ICM Rio 2018.
Organisation for women in East Asia is also ongoing.
Associations in individual countries have also been sponsored.
In 2015-16 CWM sponsored events took place in Colombia (Latin America), India, Indonesia (S. and E. Asia), Kazakhstan (Central Asia), Mexico (Latin America), Senegal (West Africa), Tunisia (North Africa), Kenya (Africa) and Brazil (Latin America).
In 2017, events took place in Brazil, Canada, Chile, India, Iran, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Tunisia, South Africa and Vietnam.
In 2018, events are taking place in Austria, El Salvador, Ethiopia, India, Italy (ICTP) Macedonia, Nigeria, Uruguay, Uzbekistan and a booklet project on women role models in Africa is being supported.
The flyer is two sided and is designed to be folded along vertical lines into three.
