Professor Pamela E. Harris has started #IAmSheffield to showcase the diversity of the University of Sheffield in her talk for International Women’s Day 2021.
The women’s network at the university hosted a talk yesterday from Professor Harris, a mathematician at Williams College in Massachusetts, USA. Professor Harris is also a co-founder of Lathisms: Latinxs and Hispanics in the Mathematical Sciences and is passionate about inclusivity.
IWD took place on Monday with this year’s theme of #ChooseToChallenge which encourages the idea that everyone can choose to challenge the gender bias and inequality that women face. The campaign hopes for the celebration of women’s achievements and the creation of an inclusive world.
