Description

This week-long workshop is designed to support women, particularly women of color, who have completed 1–3 years of graduate school and are considering research in algebra, combinatorics, geometry, topology, or number theory.

The transition to independent learning and research is a crucial and often jarring point in every graduate student's career. This transition is even more difficult for students from marginalized groups, who often have smaller support systems and may face an actively unsupportive environment at their institution. The goal of this workshop is to support, mentor, and guide students at this crucial stage in their career.

This workshop is open to anyone who identifies as a woman, nonbinary, and/or gender fluid and who has also completed 1-3 years of graduate education in mathematics. The program is tailored to support women of color, and our strategies reflect this priority.
