The Horizons Lectures consists of two events, a research colloquium as well as a seminar discussion on the societal impacts of the mathematics profession with the following goals:
• To discuss issues of diversity and inclusion in STEM fields.
• To provide career advice to graduate students and junior faculty.
• To promote the work of mathematicians from underrepresented groups.
Speakers are invited to discuss any topic of their choice. For example, speakers might share their own journey in academia, share their experiences in mentoring students and developing curricula that meet students’ needs, or discuss some efforts and challenges to building an equitable mathematical community.
