International Women's Day @ QMUL

The School of Mathematical Sciences at QMUL is proud to be supporting a series of events celebrating International Women's Day and the contribution of women to the field of mathematics.

This year, International Women's Day falls on 8th March and during this week, we have three events taking place aimed at engaging with a variety of different audiences. The aim of the events is to celebrate successes and help address barriers to female participation in mathematics while create a space for girls and women to learn from each other, network and share their ideas.

Each of the three events is designed for those at different stages in their education or academic career and share the common aim of inspiring female mathematicians to be active and successful in their field:

The Sonya Kovelevsky Maths Day will give Year 12 girls interested in maths the opportunity to hear from female researchers and academics about their work as well as discovering new and exciting areas of maths. 

Partnering with WISE, Queen Mary will host an event set to inspire those in the early stages of their career in academic STEMM subjects while facilitating discussion and community between groups and participants in attendance.

The last event of the week will be the Women Count. conference organised by students in the School of Mathematical Sciences for undergraduate and postgraduate students, providing information about opportunies in the field of mathematics, both at university and beyond.
