Programs and Activities

The AWM Chapter at UNC-Chapel Hill organizes outreach, mentoring, and social events for students and the larger Triangle community.


Mentor Network

Our mentor network pairs undergraduate AWM members with graduate student mentors in the mathematics department.  The pairings are assigned after a “speed mentoring” event during which mentees talk with each mentor for a few minutes.

Francesca Bernardi, then AWM President, gave a talk on the mentoring network at the 2018 Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Diego. You can view the slides here.

Girls Talk Math

Girls Talk Math is a two week long day camp for girl-identified high schoolers in the triangle area who are interested in math. See website for details.

Katrina Morgan, then AWM Treasurer, gave a talk on the camp’s inquiry-based learning curriculum at the 2018 Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Diego. You can view the slides here.

Francesca Bernardi and Katrina Morgan presented a poster on the program at the 2018 Joint Mathematics Meeting in San Diego. You can view the poster here.

Association for Women in Mathematics Triangle Conference

In February 2018, we hosted roughly 75 undergraduates, graduates, and professors from 8 institutions across North Carolina for the first AWM Triangle Conference. Undergraduate and graduate students of underrepresented genders were invited to present their work in the Undergraduate Poster Session or during the Graduate Research Talks concurrent sessions. For details about the event, please visit the conference page on our website.

The conference was funded by an NSF INCLUDES: WATCH US Mini Grant dispersed by the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.

Public Lectures

Our chapter invited and hosted Dr. Moon Duchin from Tufts University in November 2017. She gave a public lecture at UNC on her work on geometry and gerrymandering.

Meet the Speaker

The Meet the Speaker series provides AWM members an opportunity to talk with female mathematicians who have been invited to present at UNC.
