The Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program and the Humanities Research Institute co-host this annual event bringing together faculty, staff, students, and community members to recognize people who have made a difference in academia. Each speaker will have five minutes to tell the story of a woman in their discipline who changed the field in important ways.
Join us in person at Levis Faculty Center or watch the live stream.
