    Event description

    May12 is an International initiative to celebrate women in Mathematics. It is held (since 2018) on the birthday of Maryam Mirzakhani, the first woman to win the Fields Medal. 

    At ANU in 2024, will be celebrating with a one day event on Monday 13 May, bringing together our mathematical community, and all the groups working towards gender equality in STEM:

    The Mathematical Sciences Institute, the ANU Mathematics SocietyFifty50, the ANU Women* In STEM Leadership Conference, the ANU Women in Physics, Astro and Engineering, the Rladies, the College of Engineering, Computing and Cybernetics Diversity, Belonging, Inclusion, and Equity team, and the College of Science Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access team.

    The event is designed to allow people to meet and chat informally, view the Australian Women of Mathematics exhibition and read the associated book, read messages from MSI alumni, and talk to all the groups involved (stalls will be set up to meet the community).

    The event also features five 20 minute talks, accessible to people with knowledge of first year mathematics. 

    As always, we make sure that the work required to celebrate and support women in Mathematics is carried by people of all genders.
