WOMEN IN MATH DAY - MAY 12, 2022

On May 12, 2022, SFU's Association for Women in Mathematics Student Chapter together with the Department of Mathematics EDI Advisory Group hosted a series of events for International Women in Mathematics Day. May 12 was chosen as the birthday of Maryam Mirzakhani, the first female fields medallist. Read more about this international event and Dr. Mirzakhani here: https://may12.womeninmaths.org/.

The day was a huge success, kicked off by the women's luncheon hosted by the AWM Student Chapter, where women and non-binary individuals met over food and games to get to know one another.

Following this time of food and cheer, the Math Department's EDI Advisory Group hosted a movie screening, showcasing newly developed videos interviewing the female mathematicans in the department on their journey, and advice for any wannabe mathematicians out there. And, of course, more food! Please enjoy a few photos from the day. A special thanks goes out to the Department of Mathematics and the Associate Dean of EDI for supporting this event. Thanks to Michelle Beninteso of Once Upon a Cake for the amazing cupcakes, our very own Olivia Gutenberg for putting together these lovely videos, and everyone who helped make the day possible by joining in!

The events continue with movie screenings on Thursdays at 2pm in AQ4135. We hope to see you there!
