What is AWM?

AWM at Wake Forest:

AWM stands for the Association for Women in Mathematics. The purpose of AWM is to encourage women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and the equal treatment of women and girls in these fields.

How will COVID-19 affect AWM?

Our current AWM executive board is working to make sure that we can provide the same great events and programs in an online format. Brown Bag Seminars, guest speakers, and diversity and inclusion discussions will be held over Zoom. This gives us the added benefit of being able to record the seminars and guest speakers and post them for later viewing on our website. The mentorship network will proceed as planned, but will be organized and will likely be carried out online.
