Abstract

The IAS/Park City Mathematics Program hosts an intensive residential conference every summer in Park City, Utah. The authors were among 15 participants chosen for the 2018 special session Shape of the River: Workshop on Equity and Mathematics Education. This workshop advertised, among other objectives, for participants to “develop ideas about methods for working toward inclusion and equity in mathematics; share their own work related to broadening participation in mathematics [...]; and make connections with others concerned with these issues who work in related environments.” In this article a group of five mathematicians share personal experiences about the workshop and offer suggested prompts for faculty to use to reflect on equity in their classrooms and departments.
We arrived in sunny Park City in July with varying backgrounds but with some common hopes and expectations.
