AWM encourages individuals or organizations to seek “in cooperation” status for conferences, meetings or events that make a significant effort to promote women in mathematics.
AWM will consider requests from individuals and organizations that
agree that AWM bears no financial or legal liability,
have at least one AWM representative on the organizing committee and involves AWM in the conference, meeting or event planning,
make a significant effort to promote women (or girls as appropriate) in mathematics through programmatic features or participant and speaker selection,
are attentive to diversity issues,
will offer AWM members the same registration fees offered to members of the sponsoring organization
They further agree to
list “in cooperation with AWM” with a link to the the AWM website awm-math.org on conference, meeting or event announcements and programs
the terms of the Statement of Non-Discrimination at AWM activities and will include the following in the event program and on the event website. “This conference supports the Welcoming Environment Statement (include a link to the statement) of the Association for Women in Mathematics”
A formal request must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line [Request for Meeting in Cooperation with AWM]. Please include the location, dates, subject, program outline, costs to participants, sponsoring organizations, list of organizers, and the potential benefits to AWM and its members. Please also include the timeline for planning and participating in the conference, meeting or event. The requesting organization or individuals must get AWM’s approval for use of the “in cooperation with AWM“ status in grant proposals seeking funding for the conference, meeting or event.
A meeting is in cooperation with AWM if it has an AWM sponsoring member, and the conference supports the Welcoming Environment Statement of the Association for Women in Mathematics:
It is the policy of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) that all participants in AWM activities will enjoy a welcoming environment that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. As a professional organization, the AWM is committed to fostering an atmosphere that encourages the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas. In pursuit of that ideal, the AWM is committed to the promotion of equality of opportunity and treatment for all AWM members and participants in AWM-sponsored events, regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities, veteran status, or any other reason not related to scientific merit. Harassment, sexual or otherwise, is a form of misconduct that undermines the integrity of AWM activities.
