The Infinite Possibilities Conference (IPC) is a national conference that is designed to promote, educate, encourage and support underrepresented women interested in mathematics and statistics. While a number of workshops and conferences in the mathematical sciences work to increase awareness of issues of underrepresentation with respect to race/ethnicity or to gender, there is a lack of programming designed to address both. Through a lively series of panels, plenary sessions, research presentations, and workshops, IPC addresses issues including:  the sharing of professional advice and mentoring; the sharing of research in a supportive environment; the need to counteract isolation; and the need for visible role models.
