EWM association

European Women in Mathematics is an international association of women working in the field of mathematics in Europe. EWM aims at:

  • encouraging women to study mathematics
  • supporting women in their careers
  • providing a meeting place for like-minded people
  • promoting scientific communication
  • cooperating with groups and organizations with similar goals
  • giving prominence and visibility to women mathematicians
  • spreading their vision of mathematics and science

Founded in 1986, EWM has several hundred members and coordinators in  33 European countries. Every other year, EWM holds a general meeting and a summer school. A newsletter is published at least twice a year, EWM has a website, a facebook group and an e-mail network EWM-ALL (person in charge Katrin Leschke from the standing committee).

Several videos have been produced by EWM, such as  Women in Mathematics Movie Part I, Part II and Part III.
