Diversity, Inclusion, Equity, and Settler Colonialism in Mathematics
Diversity and inclusion projects to support aspiring and current mathematicians from marginalized communities are often framed through some need for diversity and inclusion to advance the fields of mathematics. However, these conversations often fail to center the needs and goals of marginalized and underrepresented communities. In this talk, I discuss diversity and inclusion initiatives through a lens that is informed by frameworks that identify mathematics education as settler colonialism and my own experiences of inclusion/exclusion. I call for a shift in the ways we can frame conversations of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in mathematics by asking: How do diversity and inclusion efforts in mathematics and mathematics education directly empower marginalized communities?
