Truth Values: One Girl’s Romp Through M.I.T.’s Male Math Maze

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.

This project could be an introduction to cutting-edge research, setting up the groundwork for a thesis or research project, or a casual survey of an article that would be intimidating to cover on one’s own.
