Network of mathematicians of color

December 3 to December 4, 2018
at the

American Institute of Mathematics,
San Jose, California

organized by

Michael Young and Shelby Wilson

## Original Announcement

This workshop is devoted to building a Network of
Mathematicians of Color, which will encourage African Americans to pursue
careers in the mathematical sciences, promote the advancement of African
Americans currently in the discipline, showcase the mathematics of African
Americans, and generally create a space for African American mathematicians to
engage with others from different professions/institution types.
African American mathematicians exists in a variety of professions and
institution types. However, this group of mathematicians is not integrated
across the spectrum. These brings up the following questions. What are the
optimal strategies to allow for more participation of African American
mathematicians at all levels of the mathematical profession? What are realistic
goals and directions that should be thought about to strengthen the connections
between African American mathematicians? What kind of events or set of events
could be created to support this?

The purpose of this gathering of African American mathematicians from around the
country is to reflect and plan on how to address the above questions.
