Dear colleagues and friends,
the International Mathematical Union IMU has prepared a new women in maths website which was launched today by IMU president Ingrid Daubechies at ICWM in Korea. I hope you find it useful. Please feel free to share the announcement below with anyone you think might be interested.
Best regards from Korea,
LAUNCH OF NEW INTERNATIONAL WOMEN IN MATHS WEBSITE
In March 2013 the Executive Committee of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) approved the establishment of an Advisory Group for Women in Mathematics, charged with creating and overseeing a section of the IMU website entitled Women in Mathematics (WiM). Opportunities for women vary widely from country to country and a main aim is to enhance the participation of women in all mathematical communities. The new WiM site will be launched at the International Congress of Women Mathematicians on August 12th just prior to the International Congress of Mathematicians, at the address http://www.mathunion.org/wim/
The site includes information about organizations, people, events, resources and initiatives of interest to women mathematicians world-wide. In order to maximize the usefulness of this site, we welcome suggestions from the community. Indeed, advice concerning items for inclusion is important to us.
The Advisory Group may be contacted at info-for-wim at mathunion.org<mailto:info-for-wim at mathunion.org> <mailto:info-for-wim at mathunion.org>.
The WiM Advisory Group:
Ingrid Daubechies (Chair) (USA),
Petra Bonfert-Taylor (USA),
Carla Cedarbaum (Germany),
Nalini Joshi (Australia),
Sunsook Noh (Korea),
Marie-Françoise Ouedraogo (Burkina Faso),
