In recent months, PIMS has been actively engaging in conversations on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Following the Panel on Women in STEM held in May, this next event looks at ways in which effective allyship can build a better and stronger community in the Mathematical Sciences. Being an ally involves much more than passively accepting someone's rights. It is a conscious engagement and active advocacy for those whose voices may be stifled, unheard, or underappreciated. Our panelists look at actionable steps we can take to be better champions in academia.
