Widening Participation in Innovation and Research Careers

On Wednesday 17 January, CDTs in Mathematical and Computing Sciences organised an information event, designed for students early in their undergraduate studies. The aim was to give more information about PhD programmes, discuss requirements and highlight pathways, in order to help students keep their options open. In particular, summer research opportunities were discussed, and staff and PhD student representatives were there to provide advice on finding a project. The event was well attended and feedback was very positive, highlighting the need for events of this type in the future.

Equality Diversity and Inclusion in the Mathematical Sciences

Our inaugural EDI in the Mathematical Sciences day, held on November 8th, was well attended and featured talks from three speakers covering a range of issues.

Chad Topaz, Professor of Complex Systems at Williams College, opened the event with a fascinating talk on how data science have revealed injustices within both the judiciary and police forces within the US; a talk which stimulated lots of questions and discussion. Following up, Tiana Holgate spoke of her wide experience and knowledge of race related issues within the workplace and society as a whole; again, with great interaction and engagement from the audience. Finally, and with great confidence, two Mathematics Undergraduates from Warwick’s Autism Society, Helen Throp and Amy Rogers, spoke about neurodiversity - how this can affect a student's life and study at University, and what staff can do to improve this experience.

Overall the day was a great success and it is hoped this will become a yearly event.

Report on Ada Lovelace Day 2023

This year's Ada Lovelace Day event saw a record number of attendees come to celebrate the achievements of women in STEM.

This year's iteration of the annual event was hosted on Wednesday 18th October, and featured four amazing speakers who came to share with our students and staff the story of their careers, and what they've achieved since graduation. We heard from three alumni speakers who have worked in careers including machine learning, finance, and health data; and one speaker who is a lecturer in the Warwick Zeeman Institute. Between them they showcased the wonderful variety of fields that those who have studied the mathematical sciences - and in particular women - contribute to.

This year we had more guests in attendance than in any previous year, for which we'd like to thank the execs of the University of Warwick Computing Society, Warwick Maths Society, and Warwick Statistics Society, who greatly helped us with advertising the event in order to make sure it reached as many interested people as possible. And we'd like to thank the speakers again for taking the time to come and share their stories and achievements with us!
