Association for Women in Mathematics Student Chapter

An AWM Student Chapter has started here at SFU! The goals of the Student Chapter are to increase support for women and other underrepresented groups in their academic and mathematical journeys, create opportunities for networking/mentorship with women at later career stages in mathematics, and host fun social activities! Any student at SFU is welcome to join, regardless of gender identity or expression, race, colour, religion, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or ability.

Contact awm_student@sfu.ca to join the mailing list, or for a link to join the discord server.

See the AWM's meeting and event archives HERE.

To celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, AWM Student Chapter President, MacKenzie Carr, interviewed women of all levels in our department.
