Ally Day on November 27th, 2021

Have you ever asked yourself what problems other students are facing, and how you can empathize with them? Have you ever wondered how you can be a good ally to fellow students of underrepresented groups and enhance a study environment with inclusivity and respect? We, a group of students who have asked themselves these questions, have organized an event for you! At our Ally Day, which takes place on Saturday, 27th of November at 3-6 pm online, we offer everyone, regardless of gender, race or age a chance to meditate and opnely discuss on the topic of diversity and allyship.

The Ally Day is planned as follows: After a round of speedfriending, we will listen to a presentation held by our special guest Dr. Cassandra Ellerbe on the topic “Diversity and Inclusion at the University”, and discuss our opinions and experiences with her. Then, we have “Tea Timewith People in Mathematics”, which was inspired by the popular series of events “Tea Time with Women in Mathematics”. We have invited some faculty members of our department who are eager to share their experiences in academia in informal rounds of discussions. Feel free to ask them about diversity in academia, their careers, mathematics, anything!
