GIIM will host the second Women in Math and Statistics Conference at the Harvard Science Center on Saturday, April 1st, 2017. Check back here for more updates in the weeks to come!

This conference supports the Non-Discrimination Statement of the Association for Women in Mathematics. We are proud to hold this year’s conference in Cooperation with the AWM.


WIMS hopes to connect women, gender minorities, and allies interested in math and statistics in the Boston area. Our mission is to provide you with the opportunity to connect with leading women mathematicians working in both academia and industry and to interact with your peers. For our first year, we had an exciting agenda of speakers, panels, and workshops–see last year’s schedule here. All genders welcome!

This year, our keynote speakers will be Ruth Charney, Theodore and Evelyn Berenson Professor of Mathematics at Brandeis University and former President of the AWM, and Jennifer Balakrishnan, Clare Booth Luce Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at Boston University.

Quotes from Last Year

“I think this was a wonderful experience that I hope will continue for many years to come. I hope the word gets out even more and appreciate all the effort gone into making this conference happen! It was amazing talking with all of these other younger women who have similar experiences and goals as I do.”

“Great day! I really enjoyed connecting with other math students in the Boston area and discussing gender inequality issues with leading female figures in the math field. Would definitely attend again next year.”
