Latinx mathematicians network

December 6 to December 7, 2018
at the

American Institute of Mathematics,
San Jose, California

organized by

Jesus A. De Loera and Pamela E. Harris

## Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to building a
Network of Latinx Mathematicians, which will encourage Latinxs to pursue careers
in the mathematical sciences,
promote the advancement of Latinx currently in the discipline, and showcase the
mathematics of Latinxs, especially those within the U.S.
The government predicts that by 2045 non-Hispanic whites will be a minority
group within the U.S. population. In light of this fact, the sustainability of
the future U.S.
economy will require the integration of a new generation of Latinxs to the work
force. This means that within 30 years the mathematical community should aim to
see
a proportional shift in the profession too; from the demand of workers and
educators, as well as from the rise in numbers of students of color.

With the fast arrival of such a large demographic change, how can we better
facilitate the access and recruitment of Latinxs into the mathematical sciences?
What are the
optimal strategies to allow for more participation of Latinxs at all levels of
the mathematical profession? What are the key obstacles in teaching true
representation
with in the profession? What are realistic goals and directions in order to
address the current underrepresentation of Latinxs in the mathematical sciences?

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