Women’s Research on Women Symposium
Celebrating Our Scholars Virtually
About the Symposium
Each year, we set aside the month of March to celebrate and recognize women’s research on women. Since 2013, the Women’s Research on Women Symposium, sponsored by the College of Education and Human Development’s Education Leadership Research Center, Office of Organizational Development and Diversity Initiatives, Women’s Faculty Network, and Women’s and Gender Studies, is an annual event at Texas A&M University, where our community comes together and recognizes our very own female faculty conducting research on girls, women, and gender.
The 2020 Women’s Research on Women Symposium was canceled due to protective measures against the spread of COVID-19. While we are disappointed to lose the opportunity for fellowship during this time, we would still like to celebrate the work of our 2020 Women’s Research on Women invited guest speakers and encourage you to follow them in their scholarship; for a brief look at some of what they’ve been up to, please check out below.
