Panel Discussion

Yesterday I attended a panel discussion for female mathematicians.  The speakers were all female professionals with PhD degrees in mathematics, while the audience consisted of young female mathematicians in training.  The event was an unique way for the panelists to share their experiences as professional mathematicians and for the audience, this was an opportunity to ask questions about what a math degree means for their future.  The evening turned out to be very candid and intimate, and it was inspiring to watch current mathematicians share their words of wisdom to future generations.  The event was sponsored by the University of Waterloo Women in Math and Canadian Mathematical Society.
