Event description
Mentorship from mathematicians that are not from under-represented communities could help fight underrepresentation.

About this Event

There is no denial that certain visible minorities are underrepresented in mathematics. I often hear people say that the best way to fight this issue is to have more role models from those minority groups that lack representation in the mathematical community. I believe that is true. However, I also believe that there needs to be an intermediate solution until we reach that point when we have enough role models to have an impact. Based on my own personal experience, I want to explain why I believe mentorship from mathematicians that are not from those communities could help fight underrepresentation.
