Women In Math

About us

The Women in Math group in the UCLA math department is an informal group of women graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and visitors.  We regularly hold lunches, dinners, and other social gatherings with the goal of fostering community and providing support for the women in the department. 

Distinguished Women in Math Lecture Series

The Distinguished Women in Math Lecture Series features research talks by leading women mathematicians. During their time at UCLA, the speakers also meet with the Women in Math group to provide mentorship and build connections across the broader mathematical community.

Southern California Women in Mathematics Symposium

The 10th annual symposium for Women in Math in Southern California (WimSoCal) will be held February 11, 2017 at the University of Southern California. The symposium includes opportunities for graduate students to give talks and network with more senior   women mathematicians in Southern California.         


The Women in Math group runs a math table each year at the STEM day hosted by UCLA group AWiSE (Advancing Women in Science and Engineering), which is a day of hands-on science and math activities for girls from local middle schools.
