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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of ways to connect with other IBR women scholars is through our private Facebook page. You can find us at Facebook under “IBR Women.” If you have any questions, you can contact Beth Stovell at email@example.com.
