DIVERSITY DIALOGUE LUNCHEON in celebration of Ada Lovelace Day

 

Inclusion-exclusion in mathematics: who stays in, who falls out, why it happens, and what we should do about it.

 

The Faculty of Science and the Schulich School of Engineering are pleased to welcome Dr. Eugenia Cheng as this year's speaker for the Diversity Dialogue Luncheon in celebration of Ada Lovelace Day.

 

Join Dr. Cheng for an informal discussion about her experiences of being a female mathematician and teaching mathematics at all levels - from elementary school to grad school. The question why women are under-represented in mathematics is complex. There are no simple answers - only multiple contributing factors. 

Dr. Cheng argues that by focusing on character traits rather than gender, we can have more productive and less divisive conversations. To show this, Dr. Cheng will introduce gender-neutral character adjectives "ingressive" and "congressive" to replace masculine and feminine.
