UMI is pleased to invite you to an online gala to celebrate women in mathematics, which will be held on Wednesday May 27th 2020 at 5pm (Rome time), an event in the frame of the International Day of Women in Mathematics

After a welcome message by Piermarco Cannarsa, UMI President, and Chiara de Fabritiis, coordinator of the Equal Opportunity committee, the Italian Ministry for Equal Opportunity and Family Elena Bonetti, a mathematician borrowed to politics, will deliver a short address to the public.

Then three mini round tables (duration of each one: 30'), hosting 4 people and a moderator, will take place, concerning some of the turning points of career and life of women in mathematics.

"THE CALL: to be or not to be (a woman in mathematics)?" deals with people or experiences in the direction of becoming a professional mathematician. 

"VOLVER: PhD abroad and more" is about time spent abroad and the difficulties to come back in Italy finding an appropriate position.

"WORKING GIRLS: women in mathematics between research and the institutions" concerns the role of women in the academy, learned societies and research institutions.

The event will be in Italian and will be on streaming at: UnioneMatematicaItaliana/ and on the MaddMaths! Youtube Channel.
