Institute for Women’s Leadership seeking papers for inaugural IWL Research Conference

The Institute for Women’s Leadership invites scholars at all career stages and from all disciplines whose research centers on women and/or gender to submit their work to the inaugural IWL Research Conference.

The conference will be Saturday, March 25, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Athletic and Human Performance Research Center. 

With this year’s theme of “courageous collaborations,” the conference aims to gather a diverse, collaborative community of undergraduate students, graduate students, staff and faculty at all stages of their research careers around a shared interest in women and/or gender.

Finally, it seeks to further develop a multidisciplinary community for research related to women and gender.  

Proposals are being sought for the following: 

  • “Works in progress” workshops where participants will have the opportunity to get feedback on work at any stage, from early research memos to funding proposals to full draft papers  
  • Poster presentations that allow participants to present their gender research to a broad, interdisciplinary audience 
  • Participation on a panel on collaborative research and co-authorship as part of IWL’s Women Who Write Series
