IBR Women began as the vision of Carol Kaminski and Beth Stovell in 2014. At that time, women comprised only 7.7% of the over 500 IBR members. We developed a IBR Women Scholars’ Breakfast with the goal to connect current women IBR members for mutual support, networking, and advancement in scholarship.
The first breakfast had 30 women on the list and by 2019 we had over 100! A recent grant with the Imago Dei Fund has allowed us to expand our work with IBR Women beyond our breakfast to a retreat, seminars, and social media presence. We look forward to a bright future for IBR Women!
