Description

The Celebration of Women in Mathematics on May 12 is part of a new international initiative to inspire women everywhere to celebrate their achievements in mathematics, and to encourage an open, welcoming, and inclusive work environment for everybody. May 12 was chosen for this annual event, as it is the birthdate of Maryam Mirzakhani

On May 13th, MSRI invites all women mathematicians in the Bay Area to gather in community. We will have the opportunity to learn about Maryam's work, preview a film about her life, discuss topics of common interest, and connect with each other in celebration.
