UT University Held a Seminar on Women in Math with an All Male Panel

A flyer advertising a February 2018 seminar on women in math at a Utah university featured an all male panel. The presenters and the flyers were created by a student-led group. The school acknowledged that the imagery was off message, but it did not address the fact that no women were included on the panel for this seminar. An all-male panel to address women’s contributions in math is more than off message; it shows that women’s voices are not valued, even when discussing their own accomplishments.
