Supporting Women Mathematical Scientists
The Isaac Newton Institute is committed to equal opportunities at all levels of our activities. This commitment is founded not just on principles of fairness and justice but on the recognition that, as a world-class research institute, we must utilise the whole spectrum of mathematical research talent. Moreover, as an international visitor research institute in the mathematical sciences, we have a pivotal role in developing the research careers of women mathematical scientists, thereby helping to redress the historical gender imbalance. The Institute Gender Balance Action Plan 2013 details some concrete steps that we shall take in the next few years.
Six questions with... is a series of interviews which showcase the achievements of inspirational women from all kinds of backgrounds and at all stages of their mathematical sciences careers. If you are a female mathematical scientist, have participated in Institute activities, and would like to contribute to the series, please contact the Librarian and Information Officer.
The Institute is committed to removing barriers to women's participation in Institute activities. We have specific schemes in place to assist with financial and family support. Please contact the Institute Administrator for further information and advice.
Funding may be available from the London Mathematical Society to assist with childcare costs for UK based mathematicians. Further details are available on the LMS webpage Childcare Supplementary Grants.
