5th Annual Women in Mathematics Symposium

The EDGE Southern California mentoring network in cooperation with the AWM and the Women in Math group at USC is organizing a one-day symposium for Women in Mathematics in Southern California.

  • Learn about the research of other women in Southern California
  • Present your work in a supportive environment
  • Network with other Southern California women mathematicians
  • Explore issues surrounding being a woman in mathematics

Our vision is two-fold:

The symposium will provide an opportunity for women in mathematics in the southern California area to get to know each other on a personal as well as a professional level.  Our aim is to create a network of women mathematicians in the Southern California area in order to nurture collaborations and provide a framework for mentoring.

The symposium will provide an opportunity to develop professionally by giving a mathematical talk in a supportive, non-threatening environment.
