“Our community will benefit from the recruitment and retention of talented young women who dream of doing mathematics for a living”
WOMEN DO MATH
WomenDoMath is an easy-access platform supported by the NSF that brings you news and resources about women and other groups or individuals in mathematics that accurately represent the diversity of the math community. WDM aims to provide a central hub and resources pool within reach for women in mathematics. It can also serve as a means of learning and growth for anyone wanting to promote gender equity and overall inclusiveness in STEM. Use this portal to connect with others, check out upcoming math events, and stay up to date with this and more communities in mathematics.

The WomenDoMath initiative is brought to you by the WATCH US (Women Achieving Through Community Hubs in the United States) grant funded by the NSF
The goal of the WATCH US project is to increase and diversify the number of professional mathematicians in the United States by identifying and proliferating best practices and known mechanisms for increasing the success of women in mathematics graduate programs, particularly women from under-represented groups. In addition to the WomenDoMath site, the project supports both exploratory and effectiveness research to address the following questions: Which interventions are most critical in the success of women, as a function of their position along distinct diversity axes? Which features of these interventions are most effective as a function of the stage of the participant’s career? A stakeholder’s meeting was held in June, 2017 at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln to inform the development of a process for effective, collective decision-making and to disseminate the results of the research study. Finally, a set of scalable prototype activities were selected for mini-grants. We will continue to post research results and data as they become available.
