Diversity in Mathematics Days


Funded by the Committee for Women and Diversity in Mathematics and hosted externally, Diversity in Mathematics Days are annual events focused on some aspect of diversity in the mathematical sciences beyond gender. The event is expected to both feature the work of people in the mathematical sciences (whether in industry or academia) who come from a particular diversity group, and offer mentoring and networking opportunities to mathematicians from that diversity group.

Applicants typically come from a university or from a school, although any qualified person may apply. If the event is to be held in a school, it should encourage students from diverse backgrounds to become more involved in mathematics. The event should be aimed at school students up to and including A-level or equivalent.

Individuals or groups interested in organising and hosting a Diversity in Mathematics Day may submit a grant application. The maximum grant per organiser is £1000 and one grant is awarded each academic year.
