Diversity in Mathematics: an undergraduate summer school for women in mathematics
July 22, 2019 - August 8, 2019
This is a multi-year, multi-level approach to promoting diversity and inclusivity in STEM. The annual two-week program will encompass two concurrent, partially overlapping events targeting two distinct groups:
1. A summer school for top undergraduate women from across Canada and the northwest US, currently specializing in mathematics or a closely related STEM field, such as computer science, physics and statistics. The program will expose them to the many facets of mathematical sciences as a career in an intense two week immersion. Career opportunities in academia and industry will be given equal emphasis.
2. An interactive math camp that runs as a companion program to the undergraduate summer school. The target demographic here involves high school students in grades 10 and 11 in western Canada, irrespective of gender, with an aptitude for science and mathematics but exclusively from under-privileged minority groups.
