Fall Update

Hope everyone’s term is off to a good start! So far this September, we have been busy representing our group at Clubs Days, hosting a Kickoff Event, and enjoying a start-of-term picnic. It has been truly awesome to see so many new and old faces.

Going forward, we are in the process of booking spaces for club and mentorship events. We will keep you all posted as we finalize dates, and hope to see you there!

For anyone not already there, our discord channel has become our main spot for keeping everyone updated about general UVic events and opportunities as they come along. I encourage all of you to hop on! Please send us a quick email at awmstudent@uvic.ca if you would like a link to join. :)


Welcome to the New Year!

Thank you so much to everyone who made it to our election meeting on Friday!! We’re really excited to welcome our new team of executives. A huge thanks as well to Joanna Niezen and to all the other previous officers who have been so supportive, encouraging, and helpful.

We are looking forward to our first (casual, no plans so far unless we choose to include something special) social AWM Zoom hangout, one month from now, on Friday February 12th at 4 pm ! Just to emphasize, this club and these meetings are open to everyone — non-female, non-math folk are more than welcome. Even if you have only just begun your first math course, this is a space for you! Send us a quick message to receive the Zoom link. : )

The starting dates for our Womxn in Math and Stats Mentorship Program have also been finalized! Please check out our “Mentorship” tab to learn more and stay updated.

We are still 100% open to ideas, feedback, thoughts, and would love to hear from you. If you have an event or program in mind that you want to see happen, let us know! We are super happy to invite anyone interested to our Discord Server and Facebook Page, and even if you are far too busy right now but still want to stay connected, pop us an email and we can include you on our mailing list!


*We would like to acknowledge that “female” or “women” is not an accurate description for many people and it may make some feel unwelcome. We use the term “womxn” to specifically and intentionally include cis and trans women, as well as non-binary, agender, or intersex people and other gender minorities.
