for this workshop
Network of mathematicians of color II
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California
Michael Young and Shelby Wilson
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, 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.
Space and funding is available for a few more participants. If you would like to participate, please apply by filling out the on-line form no later than November 1, 2019. Applications are open to all, and we especially encourage women, underrepresented minorities, junior mathematicians, and researchers from primarily undergraduate institutions to apply.
Before submitting an application, please read the description of the AIM style of workshop.
