AWM Activities at MathFest

AWM-MAA Falconer Lecture

The Association for Women in Mathematics and the Mathematical Association of America annually present the Etta Z. Falconer Lecture to honor women who have made distinguished contributions to the mathematical sciences or mathematics education. These one-hour expository lectures are presented at MathFest each summer. While the lectures began with MathFest 1996, the title "Etta Z. Falconer Lecture" was established in 2004 in memory of Falconer's profound vision and accomplishments in enhancing the movement of minorities and women into scientific careers.
