With funding from the National Science Foundation, the Mathematical Sciences Institutes Diversity Initiative (MSIDI) is a collaboration among the mathematical sciences institutes to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in the mathematical sciences, including women, underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities, and persons with disabilities.

### Math Institutes Diversity Workshops and Conferences

Cultivating diversity and broadening participation of historically underrepresented groups in the mathematical sciences are national goals that are identified by the National Science Foundation as *essential components of the innovation engine that drives the Nation’s economy*. There is no “one size fits all” to increasing participation from underrepresented groups so the NSF Mathematical Science Research Institutes have come together to raise funds and sponsor the following conferences and workshops that aim to address representation.

Along with our Diversity Initiative, the Mathematical Sciences Institutes Diversity Committee is proud to work with three organizations at the forefront of addressing underrepresentation in the mathematical sciences— the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), the National Association of Mathematicians (NAM) and the National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the Mathematical Science.

The Committee awards prizes to winners of the AWM poster sessions and NAM new PhDs sessions. Each year the Field of Dreams Conference, a program of the National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the Mathematical Sciences, includes research presentations from member institutes.
