On July 31, 2018, the IMU Committee for Women in Mathematics (CWM) welcomed the mathematical community to the World Meeting for Women in Mathematics - (WM)², a satellite event of the ICM 2018.

The (WM)² brought together mathematicians from all over the world to think about and discuss gender issues in mathematics, its challenges, initiatives, and perspectives for the future, with a strong focus on Latin America. Its program included research talks, group discussions about gender issues in mathematics, a panel discussion, poster presentation, and a tribute to Maryam Mirzakhani. Check out the Report of activities of the first (WM)² for the full report, with many pictures.

The proceedings book World Women in Mathematics 2018 - Proceedings of the First World Meeting for Women in Mathematics (WM)² was published in the Springer Association for Women in Mathematics Series. It also covers the CWM panel discussion at ICM 2018.
