-It was decided there would be a full group meeting at the beginning of Spring quarter in order to get eager volunteers.
- Volunteer events with schools
- Partnership (with math club) among undergrads
- Guest Speaker Series - Math Slam - A real analysis room (like calc room) for 127ABC
- Grad student panel for those nearing end of undergrad - Workshops for technical skills: python, github, latex (maybe in early fall because of timing) - Career Fair Prep events -need more prep time to do most of these
- Movie night - Game night
- A crafting type thing next year

- Roles of officers were discussed and election process started - Election of officers run by AWM chapter faculty adviser Monica Vazirani
Additional topics to consider:
We discussed plans for our first general meeting to be held on Dec 9, 2020. We organized several potential breakout rooms according to topic and discussed how officer elections could be handled.
Mission Statement Workshop We began the workshop with brainstorming in pairs about values we'd like to see in the club, and outcomes we would like to see. Next, we brainstormed our own visions for how AWM can implement these outcomes and values. We then wrote some of these ideas on the chalkboards and circulated, starring ideas we agreed with and adding question marks to ideas we didn't understand.
Ideas we came up with included:
Sample statement ideas:
NSF Research has shown that middle and high school is the best time to encourage girls to get into STEM careers, so this is our target age group!
Leah Edelstein-Keshet's generous donation will be used to fund the “AWM Women in Mathematical Biology Speaker Series”
We need to improve on this, undergrads don't know about any of our events/programs! Fliers in MSB and emails to @grads not the most effective methods.
Sam probably has lots of ideas, but was absent. New idea: Technical Workshops led by women for undergrads on LaTeX, MATLAB, etc.
