MathSafe is rooted in the belief that community norms and individual actions play a significant role in creating a space where harmful behaviors, such as incivilities, biases, and identity-based harassment, are not tolerated. By participating in MathSafe, we hope to create a community of mathematicians who actively support and uplift one another. Our goal is to ensure that MAA MathFest 2023 is a safe and respectful space for networking, learning, and collaboration.MAA MathFest 2023 promises to be an engaging event with a wide range of sessions, keynote speakers, and networking opportunities for mathematicians and students of all levels. The conference will take place at the Tampa Convention Center from August 2-5, 2023, and registration is open on our website here.
