The 2023 Presidential Recognition Award goes to Women+ and Mathematics at Institute for Advanced Study

 

The purpose of the Association for Women in Mathematics is to create a community in which women and girls can thrive in their mathematical endeavors, and to promote equitable opportunity and treatment of women and others of marginalized genders and gender identities across the mathematical sciences. To this end, the AWM Presidential Recognition Award was created to recognize those individuals who, or programs that, have significantly increased and/or supported women in mathematics.

The Association for Women in Mathematics established the AWM Presidential Recognition Award in 2014. The first award was presented at the 2015 AWM Symposium and the award is to be presented at the banquet at the biennial AWM Research Symposium.
