As of April 2024, SIAM has officially launched the new SIAM Activity Group on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. It is the purpose of the SIAM Activity Group on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion to (1) advocate and support equity, diversity, and inclusion within the field of applied mathematics, and (2) discuss and disseminate best practices for creating and sustaining equitable, diverse, and inclusive environments within the field of applied mathematics. Within the framework of SIAM, the SIAG will conduct activities that implement its purposes.
