WELCOME TO WOMEN IN MATHEMATICS @ MIT

From pure math to applied mathematics, more women than ever are interested in solving real-world and theoretical problems in pursuit of a better world. We are students, postdocs, instructors, professors, math teachers, and researchers, working in education, industry, tech, finance, and government. This website celebrates MIT mathematicians who identify as female in our department and the larger STEM community. We’re interested in advocating for an inclusive atmosphere and promoting gender equity within a largely male-dominated field. Our goal for this website is to provide a welcoming space to share our projects and achievements, upcoming events, career resources, and networking opportunities among your peers, fellow professionals, and educators. We wish to encourage women and girls to study math for the sheer joy of it, to promote their personal and professional development, and to consider careers in the mathematical sciences.
