International Women's Week

Tuesday 7th March - Thursday 9th March 2017

The School of Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London was proud to support a series of events to celebrate International Women's Week.

Through these events, we aimed to help address barriers to female participation in mathematics and create opportunities for girls and women to learn, network and share their ideas

Each of the events was designed for those at different stages in their education or academic career but shared the common aim of inspiring female mathematicians to be active and successful in the field.

We hope to be able to support similar events in the future.
