Why do we do this?
We provide the Congressional offices with a nice snapshot of the wide range of careers that mathematicians can have, and give them a chance to hear personal experiences of the impact of the legislation that they pass can have.
We build relationships with staffers and elected officials. By introducing ourselves to others working on these issues, AWM has served as a source for information regarding bills that impact women in STEM.
These events also provide participants with a great networking opportunity for meeting people across sectors and career stages. We encourage people of all mathematical careers and those who support them to attend!
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, and to get on our mailing list!
