Deakin Women in Mathematics Day – 12 May 2023
We have been celebrating Women in Mathematics every year since Professor Lynn Batten initiated the event. This tradition was then continued by Professor Maia Angelova and Dr Kerri Morgan who joined Deakin in 2017 and 2018 respectively. The Women in Mathematics Day (12 May) is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women mathematicians.
Each year, we change the focus of the event. The 2023 event is focused on the achievements of women mathematicians who work in multidisciplinary domains, to promote mathematics as a career path to girls and women in mathematics, information technology and engineering and to showcase career paths of women in academia and industry.
To achieve this aim, we will have three keynotes, one questions and answer (Q&A) session and a poster session. In parallel, we will be facilitating networking during the lunch and coffee breaks. We have invited as keynote speakers prominent women leaders from academia and industry whose careers are based in or influenced/motivated by mathematics and who are in different stages of their careers. A Question and Answer (Q&A) session will follow with focus on careers and how to achieve our potential and dreams.
The event is planned for 30 participants and will be held at
