The EDGE Program is in its 22nd year and we feel strongly about its positive impact on individual women in the mathematical sciences and on the mathematical sciences community at large. To ensure that EDGE program activities continue, we were thrilled to announce the establishment of the Sylvia Bozeman and Rhonda Hughes EDGE Foundation. With 501(c)(3) status, this is an organization dedicated to supporting the mathematics community in its efforts to increase the numbers of women persisting in careers in the mathematical sciences.
