FAU MoD Lecture: Promoting Gender Equity in Mathematics: Strategies and Solutions
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Jaqueline Godoy Mesquita
Affiliation: UnB, University of Brasília | SBM, President of the Brazilian Mathematical Society (Brazil)

Abstract. In this talk, I will explore the gender gap in mathematics, highlighting regional differences and examining the underlying causes of this disparity. We will delve into initiatives aimed at increasing the representation of women in mathematics and discuss strategies to combat bias within the field. Additionally, I will outline various opportunities available to women in mathematics, emphasizing the importance of fostering an inclusive environment that supports their growth and success.
