Gender Equity Transitions: From Awareness to Action to ACTION
Gender inequity is a pervasive issue in mathematics and other fields. Explicit and implicit bias and harassment are ongoing causes of trauma against people who are not cis white men. In addition to causing harm to individual human beings, these result in significant issues of recruitment, retention, and promotion of people who love mathematics and want to be a part of the scientific enterprise. In this presentation I will discuss some projects I’ve been part of working to overturn these barriers for women and people who are trans, nonbinary, and/or intersex.
