Truth Values promotional header

Coming to the University of Waterloo this fall is the play Truth Values, by New York writer/performer (and former mathematician) Gioia De Cari. She experienced first-hand the difficulties and inequities of being a professional woman in a male-dominated field and now uses her one-woman show to provide a humorous, scathing, insightful, and ultimately uplifting look at the challenges she and many other women face in STEM fields.

Following the play, join Gioia and panellists for a discussion on Women in STEM fields, the progress that has been made, and how we can continue to push towards greater equity, diversity, and inclusion for all people. This is a free event open to the entire University of Waterloo community. All are encouraged to come see this incredible performance and engage in the conversation. 

Beyond the Bulletin Feature

Ghazal Geshnizjani, Chair of Women in Mathematics, and Gioia De Cari sat down with Brandon Sweet and Pamela Smyth to appear on their Beyond the Bulletin podcast to discuss the inspiration for Truth Values. Gioia shares more about her background and journey through academia that led to her creating this award-winning play, and how her story has resonated with Ghazal and countless other mathematicians. Check out the podcast here.
