Welcome to the Women in Mathematics (WIM) Web Page
Women in Math (WIM) is an organization at the University of Maryland College Park (UMCP). WIM is dedicated to serving the needs of women mathematicians at UMCP. We are planning many activities for the upcoming semester, including monthly meetings with a variety of speakers.
October's WIM meeting was hold Friday, October 24, at 3:15 PM in MTH 1310. The founder and first AWM president Prof. Mary Gray gave an inspiring talk on her research and career as a statistician and lawyer. She explained how her research in statistics and law helped to rescue mathematicians' from prison, raised her own salary as a female professor, and lowered the dropping rates of female students from middle school in India. Notes from this meeting can be found here.
