IBR Women Scholars’ Breakfast

IBR Women's Breakfast

IBR will be hosting its seventh annual IBR Women Scholars’ Breakfast at SBL on Saturday, November 21 in Boston, MA. This event is designed to provide an opportunity for women IBR scholars to connect with other women for mutual support, networking, and advancement in scholarship. In 2014 we had over 40 women attend and, in 2019, this number increased to 100! We anticipate this annual breakfast will continue to foster a greater sense of community and solidarity with other women in the field. All current IBR women scholars will receive an email invitation in September. Numbers are limited, so please be prompt with your RSVP. For more information, please contact Beth Stovell at bstovell@ambrose.edu.

One of ways to connect with other IBR women scholars is through our private Facebook page. You can find us at Facebook.com under "IBR Women." If you have any questions, you can contact Beth Stovell at bstovell@ambrose.edu.

Members are now able to make a donation specifically to support our IBR Women’s Breakfast. After logging in to your account, simply click on "Donate to IBR" under Member Functions, and then select "Women's Breakfast" under "Choose a Project."
