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.
The Committee conducts its business by email and videoconference.
Note to the Chair
For the purpose of archiving the committee activities, the Secretary maintains a central file system for archiving committee records. Committee Chairs are asked to submit committee records on yearly basis. Chairs can submit material at their discretion, and some materials that they may wish to provide are meeting minutes, agenda, and emails. Confidential material should be noted, so that it can be handled in a confidential manner.
- Council Minutes, January 2014, Item 3.3: The name of this Joint Committee was changed to AMS-MAA Joint Lecture Committee. The recommended name more accurately describes the rather limited role played by this joint committee: selecting the two AMS-MAA Invited Speakers at the Joint Meetings.
- 24 April 2021 Council, Item 6.8: Added the Statement on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
