5. MODERN MATH WORKSHOP
The eight NSF-funded US mathematics institutes created a collaborative diversity initiative that began in the fall of 2011. This program sponsors several mathematics and diversity oriented workshops per year. The next activity in this series is the Modern Math Workshop, which will take place October 2–3, 2013 in San Antonio, Texas, preceding the annual SACNAS National Conference. Please visit http://icerm.brown.edu/mmw2013 for more details. The full list of upcoming diversity initiative events may be found at: http://www.mathinstitutes.org/diversity.php.
