NAM's Welcoming Statement

The National Association of Mathematicians (NAM) is a non-profit professional organization in the mathematical sciences with membership open to all persons interested in the mission and purpose of NAM, which are promoting excellence in the mathematical sciences and promoting the mathematical development of all underrepresented minorities. NAM was founded under the principles of inclusion and diversity at a time when major American mathematical organizations were excluding mathematicians of color from their membership, editorial boards, research symposia, and other professional activities. Blatant human disrespect, harassment, or assault -- sexual or otherwise -- are forms of misconduct that undermine the integrity of NAM: such misconduct will not be tolerated within the organization or at NAM activities. NAM continues to welcome and encourage diversity in the expression of scientific ideas and free expression. NAM is committed to the promotion of equal opportunity and treatment for all NAM members and participants in NAM-sponsored events, regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities, veteran status, or any other reason not related to scientific merit.
