Her Maths Story

Joana Sarah Grah, Julia Kroos and Tamara Grossmann, three female mathematicians who did their Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Münster, created the website "Her Maths Story". By sharing stories of female mathematicians, they want to showcase the variety of careers and to encourage young women to pursue studies and careers in maths.

Equality and Diversity

Mathematics Münster supports underrepresented groups and aims to increase gender equality, e.g. through programmes such as the MATHRIX Professorship, the Ada Lovelace Fellowships for excellent doctoral students, and the MINT Mentoring programme for outstanding female master’s students.
