Connecting Women in Mathematics Across Canada (CWiMAC)

June 2-3, 2021 : Online

The CMS Committee for Women in Mathematics, with support of the CMS and its institutional partners, periodically organizes workshops entitled Connecting Women in Mathematics Across Canada (CWiMAC).

The purpose of the CWiMAC workshops is to support the career development of junior female-identified academics in the Canadian mathematics community. We use an inclusive definition of woman and female and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified.
