2020 Mathematics Research Communities Opportunity for Researchers in All Areas of Mathematics How would you like to organize a weeklong summer conference and … • Spend it on your own current research with motivated, able, early-career mathematicians; • Work with, and mentor, these early-career participants in a relaxed and informal setting; • Have all logistics handled; • Contribute widely to excellence and professionalism in the mathematical realm? These opportunities can be realized by organizer teams for the American Mathematical Society’s Mathematics Research Communities (MRC). Through the MRC program, participants form self-sustaining cohorts centered on mathematical research areas of common interest by: • Attending one-week topical conferences in the summer of 2020; • Participating in follow-up activities in the following year and beyond. Details about the MRC program and guidelines for organizer proposal preparation can be found at www.ams.org/programs/research-communities /mrc-proposals-20.
The 2020 MRC program is contingent on renewed funding from the National Science Foundation.

ABOUT THE ISSUE
In honor of Women’s History Month, guest editors Margaret A. Readdy and Christine Taylor have assembled profiles of 27 mathematicians and more. These profiles provide inspiring and humbling reminders of how some individuals have contributed to mathematics, often under very difficult circumstances, and how much we need to welcome and respect all.
