For events for undergraduates, see the Mentorship section.
We are currently hosting weekly virtual teas for graduate students, postdocs, and faculty over Zoom. Please email us if you would like to be added to our mailing list to get the Zoom information!
During fall quarter, we plan to host more virtual events including the above teas, woman-to-woman socials, and more directed discussions. Please email us to be added to our mailing list in order to receive more information about future events!
At the start of fall quarter, we held a speed-dating welcome event for incoming women in mathematics.
Last year: We held biweekly lunch discussions on topics such as mentorship, work-life-balance, and families. We hosted a woman-to-woman mixer and a tea during the graduate open house. We also held workshops on "How to be a good ally" and inclusive teaching (featuring guests from the Engaged Teaching Hub.)
At the moment, we do not have an active mailing list for undergraduates; information about planned events and RSVP forms will be sent to all undergraduate math majors. We are, however, hoping to start up an undergraduate branch of the chapter this year, feel free to email us if you are interested in helping to organize this.
As a small group, we currently cannot pair undergraduate women with a specific mentor, but we hope to answer questions through panels, specific information is below.
During fall quarter, we will host virtual webinars/panels for undergraduates. We had our first panel on October 28; the focus was on the process of applying to graduate school. Stay tuned for information on our next event.
Last year, we had a general panel of graduate student women and a social for undergraduates.
The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) is a professional society whose mission is to encourage women and girls to study and have active careers in the mathematical sciences and to promote equal opportunity for and the equal treatment of women and girls in mathematics.
UCSD's chapter of AWM was re-established, after a four-year period of inactivity, by mathematics graduate students in September 2019 to promote diversity in mathematics at UCSD.
We hope to:
Membership in the AWM at UCSD is open to all UCSD students, regardless of gender, race, color, religion, age, national origin, or sexual orientation.
