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.

Hello World!

Members of the UVic AWM Student Chapter posed for a photo.

The UVic AWM Student Chapter had its first meeting on November 21, 2019. We formed the group, elected a president, vice president, and secretary (Joanna Niezen, Laura Teshima, and Felicia Halliday resp.) and discussed our goals for the group. The group aims to meet approximately once a month, with at least one meeting per year to include bureaucracy. Our initial focus will be outreach to gain membership through fun events which promote the goals of the Association for Women in Mathematics.
