conference bannerThe conference ‘Beyond the Pipeline: Women and Non-binary People in Mathematics Day’ will be held at the University of Oxford on the 17th February 2024. This is a joint event between the Mathematrix and the Mirzakhani societies of the University of Oxford. It is kindly funded by the London Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, with additional funding from industry sponsors. 

The metaphor of the 'leaky pipeline' for the decreasing number of women and other gender minorities in Mathematics is problematic and outdated. It conceals the real reasons that women and non-binary people choose to leave Mathematics. This conference, 'Beyond the Pipeline', aims to encourage women and non-binary people to pursue careers in Mathematics, to promote women and non-binary role models, and to create a community of like-minded people. 


  • Brigitte Stenhouse, The Open University
