The London Mathematical Society strongly supports advancing women's careers in university mathematics departments. The Society's Women in Mathematics Committee has developed a Good Practice Scheme with the aim of supporting mathematics departments interested in embedding equal opportunities for women within their working practices.
The Scheme provides specific support for departments working towards Athena SWAN Award status. Further information can be found in the Good Practice Scheme Booklet below.
