Statement on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
(as adopted by the April 2019 Council)

The American Mathematical Society is committed to promoting and facilitating equity, diversity and inclusion throughout the mathematical sciences. For its own long-term prosperity as well as that of the public at large, our discipline must connect with and appropriately incorporate all sectors of society. We reaffirm the pledge in the AMS Mission Statement to "advance the status of the profession of mathematics, encouraging and facilitating full participation of all individuals," and urge all members to conduct their professional activities with this goal in mind.

About this Lecture

The AMS Lecture on Education will be given annually at the Joint Mathematics Meetings. The Lecture will address topics with implications for the educational ecosystem at local, regional, or national levels of interest to the AMS membership, including the scholarship of teaching and learning. Priority will be given to topics related to student learning, educational equity, and inclusion within the mathematics and broader STEM communities.

The goal of the lecture is to inform our mathematics community on evidence-based practices, developing trends, research, and scholarship in all educational settings that are of particular relevance to mathematicians and mathematics departments.
