PIMS Equity Diversity and Inclusion Committee (EDIC)

PIMS EDIC Rationale and Purpose Comment

PIMS acknowledges that equity, diversity and inclusion strengthen the mathematical community by increasing the impact and relevance of research; widening the pool of qualified potential participants; and enhancing the integrity of the programs.




The programs and groups we support should promote and develop a rich research community, accessible to every member of the community. The purpose of the PIMS EDI Committee (EDIC) is to develop implementable, explicit strategies to monitor and improve equity, diversity and inclusivity of the Institute and its activities, and potentially impact the wider mathematical sciences community. We strive to support inclusivity at all stages from K to retirement recognizing that gains made through support of one level can often be impacted by a weakness at another. We furthermore recognize that clear, successful policies are required by funding agencies. Within the mandate we consider inequities due to gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and disabilities.
