First off, EWM-NL president Prof. Maria Vlasiou will give an overview of EWM-NL's activities and plans for next year. Thefirst keynote speaker Prof. Tanja van der Lippe will tell us about differences between men and women regarding visibility, work-life balance and career opportunities, especially in covid-times. Her talk will be followed by a group discussion on how to mitigate these differences.

Next, Dr. Arjen Dijkstra will give us a historical overview of women in mathematics, focussing on how female mathematicians were perceived in their time. Afterwards we will have a group brainstorming session, where we aim to collect a list of female mathematicians who should (but currently do not) have a Wikipedia page, to contribute to the red list. All your contributions will be welcome!
