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 AMS jointly with the MAA is pleased to offer their book Living Proof: Stories of Resilience Along the Mathematical Journey as a free PDF download. Edited by Allison K. Henrich, Emille D. Lawrence, Matthew A. Pons, and David G. Taylor, Living Proof tells the stories of barriers underrepresented groups face in the mathematics pipeline and how perseverance and persistence garnered success. To students: Stories in this book will inspire you to continue to persist on the road to becoming a successful mathematician. To teachers: This book will help you relieve some pressures on your students when they experience struggle on their way to becoming mathematicians. Download your free version.
No matter one’s economic situation, geographic location, culture, age, or language, we believe that everyone should have the chance to participate in mathematical research, teaching, and outreach.
The AMS provides support to a variety of organizations advancing the work of diversity and inclusion in our mathematics community.
Our AMS blogs are written by mathematicians whose goal is to discuss issues and create a conversation within the community to be more inclusive.
inclusion/exclusion is a blog about underrepresented groups in mathematics. The main goal of this blog is to discuss issues pertaining to marginalized and underrepresented groups in mathematics.
Math Mamas is about how the identities of being a mathematician and a mother intersect (and sometimes collide) each and every day.
The AMS creates posters that celebrate the achievements of a diverse group of mathematicians. The posters are free and available upon request.
