In addition to the Programs and Awards that we provide, AWM supports activities that seek to change the profession, to welcome more women at all levels and help to anchor them in the community. Our Policy and Advocacy work includes pushing for a Anti-Harrassment Policies at conferences, Advocating on the Hill, and supporting #TimesUp for Math. We also run subject-specific research networks to grow and expand the profession, and to put women in positions where they can move to leadership roles.

We also accept sponsorship from larger organizations!
