Gender Minorities in Mathematics and Statistics (GeMs)


Gender Minorities in Mathematics and Statistics is a Swarthmore student-run club and a registered Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) student chapter. GeMs in Math & Stats' goal is to provide a welcoming space for people of gender marginalized identities interested in math and statistics, and to make the Math/Stat Department more open and accessible to all students by hosting events throughout the semester.
