Underrepresented Groups

MAA supports initiatives to enhance opportunities for women and underrepresented minorities in the mathematical and statistical sciences. Three national MAA committees are charged with increasing the involvement of these groups in the affairs of MAA and to develop MAA activities to encourage women and minorities in careers in mathematical and statistical sciences. The committees suggest panels and speakers for national meetings and prepare materials to inform all members of MAA about critical issues related to the participation of underrepresented groups in MAA and the mathematical and statistical sciences in general. The committees also investigate the possibilities for collaborative efforts with agencies which share the mutual interest of improving mathematics education for women and minorities. Information on specific initiatives is available through the menu on the left. We invite you to explore these opportunities and to join MAA and contribute to the efforts.
