In Summer 2016, I mentored a 6-week long mathematics research program, Camp Euclid, for middle and high school students at Euclid Lab directed by David Gay of UGA. Being both a student and a mentor is a unique experience due to the fact that it offers a collaborative research opportunity and environment for youth in a wide variety of subjects in mathematics.
If you know of any enthusiastic and curious middle/high schoolers who love to ask "Why?'' and enjoy putting small pieces together to see the bigger picture, I strongly recommend you to get them experience this one of a kind research opportunity.
I gave a talk at California State University, Channel Islands Undergraduate
Math and Physics seminar organized by senior math and physics majors.
Find the slides here.
I gave a talk on conferences, summer schools, and programs for undergraduate and graduate women in mathematics at an event held by USC AWM Student Chapter.
You can find the slides of that talk here.
Some other expository talks:
Women in Mathematics
Why should one care about the presence of women in mathematics? Here is a potential answer to the representation/diversity issue:

There were two conferences in honor of Dusa's Birthday. Follow the links below for more details:
Topological and Quantitative Aspects of Symplectic Manifolds, A Conference in Honor of Dusa McDuff's 70th Birthday, March 17-20, 2016, Columbia University, NY
Symplectic Geometry and Topology: Conference in honour of Dusa McDuff, ICMS, July 25-29, 2016, Edinburgh, Scotland
Some other exciting conference announcements:
The AWM Workshop at the 2018 Joint Mathematics Meetings, January 10–13, 2018, San Diego, California
The AWM Workshop at the 2017 Joint Mathematics Meetings, January 4–7, 2017, Atlanta, Georgia
Young Women in Geometry, April 3-5, 2017, the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, Bonn, Germany
AWM Research Symposium 2017 supported by the NSF ADVANCE grant will take place on April 8–9, 2017 at UCLA
If you are a social media lover, the following would be helpful to keep yourself informed about conferences, workshops, and summer school announcements and also questions you would like to ask a group of people with similar concerns or experiences:
There are several associations and events addressing issues of gender imbalance in mathematics: one of which is a 11-day mentoring program for undergraduate and graduate women in mathematics hosted by the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), together with Princeton University with the support of the NSF called Women and Math Program.
Three leading women figures in math are running this important gathering: Sun-Yung Alice Chang (Princeton), Dusa McDuff (Barnard College, Columbia), Christine Taylor (Princeton).
It was the best mathematical event that I have ever attended in the sense that I had a chance to think about how to shape an academic career hearing experiences of and consulting with accomplished female figures in my field and listening to their engaging research talks.
