MPWR 2019 will be held on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 at the Renaissance of Oklahoma City in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. We are investigating ways to make remote participation available for those who cannot attend in person.
Every year, one day before the RUME (Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education) Conference, the MPWR Seminar takes place. The purpose of this special event is to create a sustainable support system for womxn at all career stages in undergraduate mathematics education research. The seminar will include panel discussions by leading womxn education researchers from within and beyond the RUME community, as well as professional development activities and organized opportunities for establishing peer mentoring relationships and partnerships. MPWR 2019 is our sixth year of hosting this seminar!
We are excited to welcome new and returning participants for a full-day event focused on advocacy.
