Under IWM's Visitor Programme, well-established women mathematicians from India and abroad visit and lecture in, as far as possible, non-urban areas to promote and popularize mathematics amongst female students. They deliver semi-popular talks on topics building on undergraduate mathematics. To inspire the budding minds, a few talks have also been on the life and work of women mathematicians. The lectures have been organized at numerous locations all over the country. Through this activity, IWM has reached out to the smaller and neglected educational institutions around the country.
We are grateful to the International Mathematical Union’s Committee for Women in Mathematics (CWM), whose support has enabled the visits of several distinguished women mathematicians from across the globe.
