Striving Toward Equity: Underrepresented Minorities and Mathematics

March 1, 2005

On the enthusiastic recommendation of several people who heard Mark Petersenís luncheon address at Diversity Day 2004 (SIAM Annual Meeting, Portland, Oregon), SIAM News is pleased to run a two-part article based on the talk. In the first part, which appears in the March 2005 issue, Petersen and his co-authors set the statistical stage (with a sidebar on the situation for women in the sciences); in the second part, scheduled for the April issue of SIAM News, they consider approaches and programs at all educational levels that have achieved some success in remedying the inequities described here. Eventually, SIAM News will post a more extensive version of the entire article on the Web.
