The Women in Mathematics Symposium 2011 is a forum for encouraging and supporting women preparing for and embarking on mathematical careers. It will provide a venue for graduate students and recent Ph.D.s to present their research. There will be invited talks and panel discussions featuring accomplished women mathematicians. Junior women will have many opportunities to interact with their senior colleagues, both individually and in small groups.
One aim of the symposium is to expose new female mathematicians to a wide range of career possibilities and experiences in academia, government, business, and industry. There will also be presentations and discussion forums addressing career skills such as negotiation, networking, and grant writing. The information and contacts gained by participants during the symposium should prove useful as they start their postgraduate lives, and foster connections between generations of women committed to pursuing careers in mathematics.
This workshop, held in cooperation with the Association for Women in Mathematics, will include a poster session; a request for posters will be sent to registered participants in advance of the workshop.
