Conversations for the Mathematics Community

Welcome to Conversations for the Mathematics Community!
Join us in discussing issues of equity, access, justice, identity, and inclusion. Our goal is to give you tools and strategies for the necessary work of creating meaningful and actionable change in our mathematical communities.

Our work will be based on a series of webinars released by the MAA called "Conversations for the Mathematics Community." Webinar facilitators Sara Rezvi and Rosalie Bélanger-Rioux, with their experience in these critical issues and how to discuss them, will moderate the boards. We will support you in learning from the webinars, and hopefully in becoming a facilitator yourself, so these webinars can spread and be effective!
