  Upcoming Events


Women Scholars’ Breakfast

Saturday, November 20, 2021

IBR will be hosting its seventh annual IBR Women Scholars’ Breakfast on Nov 20, 2021 at SBL in San Antonio, TX. 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.
