London Mathematical Society Good Practice Scheme workshop

Registration is now open for a Good Practice Scheme workshop to be held on Tuesday 21 October in London.

The workshop will provide individuals and departments with knowledge and tools they can use to improve recruitment and retention of women in mathematics. This may include making an application for Athena SWAN status. This workshop will particularly focus on ‘Unconscious Bias’ with a training session provided by the Equality Challenge Unit.

Participants will:

  • Participate in an ‘Unconscious Bias’ training session, with the intention of learning the skills and accessing materials that can be used to deliver sessions within their own departments.
  • Hear about how the LMS Good Practice Scheme can support Departments working towards recruiting and retaining more women in mathematics.
  • Hear from departments already engaged in the process of applying for Athena SWAN status.
  • Make useful contacts with other departments active in promoting the careers of women in maths.

To register for the workshop please email womeninmaths@lms.ac.uk by 14 October 2014 (attendance is free, but numbers are required for catering purposes).

The workshop will be held at De Morgan House, 57-58 Russell Square, London, WC1B 4HS starting at 11am.

Full timings will be confirmed at a later date.
