Gender Inclusivity in Mathematics (GIIM) is an organization dedicated to creating a community of mathematicians particularly welcoming to women interested in math and reducing the gender gap in Harvard’s math department. It was founded in May 2015 based off of feedback from the Gender Gap in Math Discussion and the Harvard Math Survey. This year, we are running a female mathematician speaker series, a discussion series, community-building socials, the National Math Survey, and WIMS, the first undergraduate women in math and statistics conference.
