Recognizing Diverse Mathematicians
There are numerous organizations and programs that highlight the many contributions of mathematicians of groups often marginalized in the mathematical sciences. They also provide safe spaces for mathematicians of various identities to network with colleagues, share their research, and advocate for equity.
- Lathisms showcases the contributions of Latinx and Hispanic mathematicians.
- The Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) fosters the success of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in STEM.
- Spectra is an organization of LGBTQ+ mathematicians and their allies to recognize and promote community for Gender and Sexual Minority mathematicians.
- 500 Queer Scientists is a campaign for LGBTQ+ people and their allies working in STEM to ensure the next STEM generation has LGBTQ+ role models and to help the current generation recognize they’re not alone.
- Mathematicians of the African Diaspora or MADPages features over 700 biographies of African American mathematicians, computer scientists, and physicists. View our webinar Documenting the History of Black Mathematicians describing efforts to document the history of the Black Diaspora in the mathematical sciences,
- Mathematically Gifted & Black features accomplishments of Black scholars in the mathematical sciences, including young rising stars.
- The National Association of Mathematicians (NAM) is open to everyone interested in promoting excellence in the mathematical sciences for underrepresented American minorities in general and African-Americans in particular.
- The Conference for African American Researchers in Mathematical Sciences (CAARMS) highlights current research by African American mathematicians.
- The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) works toward a more nurturing culture for women in the mathematical sciences.
- The Caucus for Women in Statistics (CWS) is was formed for the education, employment and advancement of women in statistics through advocacy, providing resources and learning opportunities, increasing visibility, and promoting research that impacts women statisticians.
- The EDGE Program (Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education) aims to strengthen the ability of women to pursue careers in mathematical research and education, and place more women in visible leadership roles in the mathematics community.
- Committee on Minorities in Statistics fosters participation in statistics and data science by members of minority groups that have been historically underrepresented in the field of statistics.
- The Center for Minorities in the Mathematical Sciences (CMMS) is an organization to unify and amplify the voices of minority mathematical scientists.
