A window on the world of O.R.?
The “invisibility cloak” of science fiction is now fact, albeit with limitations. O.R. could claim to have had the power of invisibility for years, though not by desire; what we want is the opposite - a high-visibility jacket! Indeed, part of the mission of the OR Society is to help make our presence more visible. But perception involves both the observed and the observer. And all of us have open and hidden parts.

Women in Mathematics

According to the London Mathematical Society (LMS), only 4% of mathematics professors in the UK are female.

This percentage might be a little higher in operational research but still nowhere near 50%. If you would like to see how the LMS is trying to do something about this, there is an interesting booklet available at:
Eugenie Hunsicker as initiator and Irina Linke as director have produced a video featuring more than 200 women from across the world who are clearly happy to be mathematicians. Watch the video here: If you would like to meet and talk to some women who are active and successful in their mathematics career, you can register for the LMS Women in Maths Days 2018 (30 April and 1 May 2018) which are being held at the Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge.
