  Upcoming Events


Women Scholars’ Breakfast

Saturday, November 21, 2020

Due to COVID-19, the breakfast is cancelled this year. Plans are underway for another IBR Women Scholars’ digital event in the Spring. Stay tuned.

IBR will be hosting its seventh annual IBR Women Scholars’ Breakfast at SBL on 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 women@ibr-bbr.org.

Members are now able to make a donation specifically to support our IBR Women’s Breakfast. [UPDATE THESE INSTRUCTIONS] 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.”
