About us

With the Gender Minorities in Math at Wisconsin (GmMaW, pronounced “gee-maw”) group, we want to create a supportive community and provide opportunities for professional development for women and gender minorities in the Mathematics Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. To this end, we organize many events throughout the year, including weekly study sessions, workshops to create personal websites, and lunches with our invited speakers. We also participate in outreach programs through the UW Mentorship program for women in Math and Science and working with local Girl Scouts.

For our events, see here
