International Women's Day event poster

Women of Waterloo (WoW)

Women of Waterloo was an event led by WiM and jointly hosted by FemPhys, oSTEM, QTPOC KW, WiCS, WiE, WiHc, and WiSTEM to Celebrate International Women's Day on May 8. Students from all six faculties at the University of Waterloo gathered for an evening of socializing, speed networking, and trivia. There was bingo, photo booths, prizes, and snacks and pizza!

Pizza Piazza

Pizza Piazza is a monthly event organized by the Women in Mathematics Committee and supported by MathSoc for women and gender minority students in the Math Faculty. This event is inspired by the Piazza forum that University of Waterloo students use to have course-related discussions. The goal of Pizza Piazza is to allow students to socialize and meet new friends. Every month, the event focuses on a different topic that aligns with the event's activities. The best part? Delicious pizza and other snacks are available to enjoy while you connect with your peers!

May Pizza Piazza poster


The topic for May is "Celebrating Women in Math." May 12 was International Women in Math Day; students will be colouring images of female mathematicians.

March Pizza Piazza poster


The topic for March was "Navigating your co-op experience." Panelists were invited to give talks and advice to students about finding co-op jobs and succeeding in them. Since March 14 is also Pi Day, pie was served to students!

February Pizza Piazza poster


The topic for February was "Love for Math." Since Valentine's Day is on February 14, this was a fitting theme, and students got the opportunity to express their love for math through decorating cookies.

January Pizza Piazza poster


January was the first month in the Winter 2024 term and the topic was "Study Groups." Students were encouraged to make new friends and form study groups for the term.


The Women in Mathematics committee would like to thank the University of Waterloo's Faculty of Mathematics, the Mathematics Society of the University of Waterloo (MathSoc), and the Waterloo Women Impact Network.
