International level organisations

At its meeting on August 12, 2014, the IMU Executive Committee decided to set up a working group aimed at the establishment of a committee whose remit would be to promote international contacts between national and regional organisations for women and mathematics and to undertake other related activities, including responsibilty for this website.

The  IMU Committee for Women in Mathematics (CWM) was approved by the EC in March 2015. The first meeting of CWM took place in Cortona, Italy 4-5 September 2015; a detailed report can be found here. The central goal from now until ICM Rio 2018 will be to help to establish networks of women mathematicians especially in Asia, Latin America and Africa. CWM will be organising a satellite meeting of ICM 2018: (WM)²: World Meeting for Women in Mathematics to take place just before the ICM.
