Joint Panel Discussion with Satellite Conferences


"Creating a new math world out of the shell of the old one"

The way we do and teach mathematics is changing, especially in the last few years in light of the global pandemic and the growing recognition of injustices within our community. We invite panelists from four different institutions and stages in their career to discuss changing practices in mathematics research, education and culture. More specifically, they will address questions regarding (a) strategies to transition research collaborations and teaching to virtual settings and (b) initiatives aimed at meeting the objectives of equity and inclusion. In addition to the prepared questions, the floor will be open for participants to ask their own questions.

Ethical conduct agreement

One of the main goals of Math For All is to create a welcoming environment for all participants. We wish for every participant to feel welcome, included, and safe at our conference. For that reason, we ask you to be mindful of your words and actions when communicating with others. We all have a bias and make mistakes. With an open mind and a willingness to apologize, we can create a safe space for everybody.

If there is a situation during the conference that makes you feel unwelcome, we ask you to please talk to one of the organizers so we can help you as best as we can.
