The Women in Math group in the UCLA math department is an informal group of women graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and visitors. We regularly hold lunches, dinners, and other social gatherings with the goal of fostering community and providing support for the women in the department.
Distinguished Women in Math Lecture Series
The Distinguished Women in Math Lecture Series features research talks by leading women mathematicians. During their time at UCLA, the speakers also meet with the Women in Math group to provide mentorship and build connections across the broader mathematical community.

Women in Math Mentorship Program
The purpose of the Women in Math Mentorship Program is to facilitate connections between the undergraduate department and the graduate fellows. Aiming particularly at the female undergrads who lack connections and insider tips, we host quarterly dinner meetings with selected applicants to share tips to apply for graduate programs, our research experience in various different fields, and any topics brought to attention prior to our meetings. Apply now at https://ccle.ucla.edu/course/view/mathprogs?section=2 or email Stephanie Wang (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Other Activities and Events
The Association for Women in Mathematics held its Research Symposium on the UCLA campus on April 8-9, 2017. Events included plenary talks, special sessions, an awards ceremony, and a poster session for graduate students and early-career women.
The 10th annual symposium for Women in Math in Southern California (WimSoCal) was held February 11, 2017 at the University of Southern California. The symposium included opportunities for graduate students to give talks and network with more senior women mathematicians in Southern California.
The Women in Math group runs a math table each year at the STEM day hosted by UCLA group AWiSE (Advancing Women in Science and Engineering), which is a day of hands-on science and math activities for girls from local middle schools.
