La nostra collega Elisabetta Strickland è stata nominata membro della Women in Mathematics Committee della European Mathematical Society per il periodo 2014-2021. L’Unione Matematica Italiana si compiace di tale scelta e le invia vive congratulazioni.
Riportiamo una breve descrizione del Committee.
This committee’s remit is to address issues relating to the involvement, retention and progression of women in mathematics. It should also support and promote the recognition of the achievements of women mathematicians. It should discuss and be ready to support appropriate initiatives to this end coming from either groups or individuals. The committee should act as the coordinating body for the committees for women in mathematics of EMS member societies, and it will also cooperate with other associations for women in mathematics.
