Current undergraduate students

Women in Mathematics Directed Reading Program (DRP) application for Fall 2022 is now open!

Prospective undergraduate student (mentees) applicants: 

Each mentee will receive mentoring one-on-one or in teams of two mentees per mentor, experience communicating mathematics, and a certificate letter from the WiM committee which they can use in their CV distinguishing them as a bright and curious individual. This is a great way to not only explore new mathematics but also meet new mathematicians!

The program is open to current undergraduate students at every stage of their studies, who identify as women or under-represented gender identities. 

If you are interested in participating in the DRP program during the Fall 22 term, please fill out this form before September 10, 2022. 

Coming to the University of Waterloo this fall is the play Truth Values: One Girl’s Romp Through M.I.T.’s Male Math Maze, written and performed by 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.
