ICIAM Statement on Racism and Discrimination

The death of George Floyd in police custody on May 25th, 2020 is a painful reminder of a persistent and systemic racism that is widespread throughout the world. The ICIAM community stands in solidarity with anyone impacted or affected by racism and discrimination. ICIAM strongly supports the statements against racism by our member societies (for example SIAM, AMS and CAIMS), and by the International Science Council.

ICIAM recognizes that mathematics is not immune to racism and discrimination, and pledges to combat systemic racism and discrimination in our community. We encourage our member societies to engage in an open conversation about racism and discrimination and to re-affirm their commitment to inclusivity and diversity in mathematics.
