- WAM organizers Christine Taylor and Margaret Readdy were guest editors for AMS Notices - Women History Month (March 2018)!
- Exciting news from Antonella Grassi, UPenn faculty and WAM organizer alumni!
- A little more than two years later, the 2015 WAM program in algebraic geometry is having a great impact on the community of young algebraic geometers. One visible effect is the number of young, active and high quality women researchers in the field: "there has never been before a critical mass of women in the field of algebraic geometry in the US", said Grassi.
- A few highlights worth mentioning:
- Isabele Vogt and Rohini Ramadas, 2015 WAM participants, are now taking part in the 2017 WAM Ambassador program where they are organizing a Graduate Workshop in Algebraic Geometry for Women and Mathematicians of Minority Genders to be held at Harvard and MIT on February 17-18, 2018. Melody Chan, Brown University is a speaker at the workshop and was a teaching assistant at the 2015 WAM program.
- AGNES - Algebraic Geometry Northeastern Series has established a Connections for Women @AGNES which had its first talk at Yale University in 2016 with the plenary talk delivered by Lucia Caporaso, program lecturer for 2015 WAM.

- Support for the 2017 Women and Mathematics program was provided by a grant from the Schwab Charitable Fund made possible by the generosity of
.**Eric and Wendy Schmidt** - Congratulations to
(BG 2005; AG 2006, 2008; TA 2007; LE 2015) and**Wei Ho**(BG 2006, 2007) on winning the 2017 Sloan Research Fellowships. The Sloan Research Fellowships seek to stimulate fundamental research by early-career scientists and scholars of outstanding promise. They are awarded in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field.**Chelsea Walton** - Congratulations to
(BG 2015), a finalist in the Canadian National Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)'s contest for students to describe their research accessibly to the public in a 1-minute video. Of the 40 Canada-wide finalists, Yuliya was the only pure mathematician to advance as a finalist. Yuliya's video, Lives of Shapes in Space is based on her master's thesis, greatly helped by her experiences in the 2015 WAM program on Aspects of Algebraic Geometry. The video demonstrates the enthusiasm and adventure of mathematical research.**Yuliya Nesterov** - In Summer 2017, six WAM alumnae returned to IAS as researchers in the inaugural Summer Collaborators Program:
