The AMS is proud to participate in MathSafe, a program by and for the mathematical community to support a safe and welcoming environment at meetings. The AMS strives to ensure that participants in the meeting enjoy a welcoming environment. See the Welcoming Environment Policy. A mechanism for reporting violations confidentially and anonymously is included in this policy.

MathSafe volunteers are trained to help if participants experience or witness harassment, discrimination, or other inappropriate behavior. Trained volunteers and staff will wear a badge with the MathSafe logo so they’re easily identifiable. For assistance, come to the Registration Desk. To speak to an ombudsperson directly or for assistance when the desk is closed, call (401) 455-4040.
