R Ladies Edinburgh: Participation of women and non-binary students in the mathematical sciences

In the second meetup of January 2021, we're joined by Mary Llewellyn. Mary is a PhD student in Statistics at the University of Edinburgh and the co-founder and co-lead of the Piscopia Initiative.

Tackling the participation crisis of women and non-binary students in the mathematical sciences
The Piscopia Initiative (www.piscopia.co.uk) was founded in 2019 to tackle the participation crisis in mathematics postgraduate research programmes. In this talk, we will share the experiences of women and non-binary students in mathematics, as well as our own, and our plans for the future to change the landscape of mathematics.

Password for the Zoom session will be sent out on the day of the event.


R-Ladies is a worldwide organization whose mission is to promote gender diversity in the R community.

A question we often get is "Are men welcome to attend this event?"

As a diversity initiative, the mission of R-Ladies is to achieve proportionate representation by encouraging, inspiring, and empowering people of genders currently underrepresented in the R community. R-Ladies’ primary focus, therefore, is on supporting minority gender R enthusiasts to achieve their programming potential, by building a collaborative global network of R leaders, mentors, learners, and developers to facilitate individual and collective progress worldwide.

**As such, we strongly encourage cis-men who attend this event to come as guests of R-Ladies who are minority genders (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender).**

All attendees are strongly encouraged to review the R-Ladies Code of Conduct (rladies.org) and must abide by it.
