SUMMARY:Diversity in Mathematics 2020
DESCRIPTION:We propose a multi-year\, multi-level approach to promoting diversity and inclusivity in STEM. The annual two-week program encompasses concurrent\, partially overlapping events targeting two distinct groups: \n(a) A summer school for top undergraduate women in Canada and the northwest United States\, specializing in mathematics or a related STEM field such as computer science\, physics and statistics. The program will expose them to the many facets of the mathematical sciences in an intense two week immersion. Career opportunities in academia and industry will be given equal emphasis. We hope to encourage these gifted young women to continue on to graduate school\, an arena where women are still seriously under-represented. \n(b) An interactive math camp that runs as a companion program to the summer school. The target demographic here involves high school students in grades 10 and 11\, irrespective of gender\, with an aptitude for science and mathematics but from under-privileged groups. \n
