Northwestern's Association for Women in Mathematics

Northwestern's Association for Women in Mathematics chapter

NUAWM is a group of students who, regardless of gender-identity or major, are interested in fostering gender diversity in mathematics. NUAWM hosts a variety of events such as dinners with faculty members, informal lunches, and talks by faculty, grad students, and undergraduates about research or diversity in mathematics

From the Participants of NUAWM:

“NUAWM events help undergraduates meet other female math majors and discuss shared experiences. Through NUAWM dinners and talks, undergraduates also have the opportunity to meet female graduate students and faculty. This creates a supportive network of both mentors and peers for aspiring female mathematicians.”   (Araminta Gwynne)

“Connecting with other students outside of the classroom helps establish a sense of camaraderie, support, and positive energy when we're in class and/or studying. NUAWM strengthens my sense of connection, confidence, and comfort within the Department of Mathematics and mathematics in general" (Kimberly Clinch)
