The American Mathematical Society (AMS) is committed to fostering efforts to support the hiring, retention and promotion of women and underrepresented minorities at all levels of academia and in industry. Members, both individual and institutional, are urged to examine their policies and procedures to find ways to facilitate careers in mathematics for traditionally underrepresented groups.
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.
