The Association for Women in Mathematics and the Mathematical Association of America
annually present the Etta Z. Falconer Lectures to honor women who have made distinguished
contributions to the mathematical sciences or mathematics education. These one-hour
expository lectures are presented at Mathfest each summer. While the lectures began with
Mathfest 1996, the title "Etta Z. Falconer Lecture" was established in 2004 in memory of
Falconer's profound vision and accomplishments in enhancing the movement of minorities and
women into scientific careers.
Etta Z. Falconer was the 1995 winner of the Hay Award. Please see
her citation for this award.
