October 4, 2023 | 2:00 pm5:00 pm

Math Beyond the Numbers

CANSSI is happy to share this event, which can be used to fulfill the EDI requirement for CANSSI-supported researchers.

Event Description

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Concordia University invites you to join an exciting discussion on the significance of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in STEM fields, with a particular focus on mathematics and statistics.

The event will challenge the traditional perception of mathematics as a purely serious subject. Featuring a drag queen host, a guest speaker (Anthony Bonato, Professor, Toronto Metropolitan University, and Member of the NSERC Committee for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion), and a diverse panel (including Mélina Mailhot, Interim Regional Director, CANSSI Quebec), this event promises an engaging and entertaining atmosphere. By presenting mathematics in a fun and accessible way, Math Beyond the Numbers aspires to reach a wider audience and emphasize the importance of EDI in STEM, specifically in the field of mathematics.
