Women in Mathematics

(last updated May 2020)

I would love to see more women among my colleagues.More and more young women are pursueing and succeeding in a mathematical career, but still too many give up too early despite their talent. We, as a community, are loosing so much unexploited talent and opportunities. I experienced in first person many of the difficulties that women encouter in their paths, from lack of self-confidence and encouragement, to the challenges of maternity and the diffcult balance between reserach, committmens and family life. I was greatly inspired, during all stages of my mathematical path, by the examples of so many inspiring women, who were at the same time great matheamticians as well as wonderful persons and acted as role models to me. To give at least a little bit in return, I try as much as possible to encourage and support younger colleagues. Here below you will find: -some examples of activities I have engaged to; -some ideas of what we can all do to support women mathematicians; -links to organizations and data
