About the Lecture:

The Judith Davidson Moyers Lecture creates a public forum to discuss the most pressing global issues faced by present-day women leaders. In addition to exploring enduring questions of human value and meaning, each year its recipients reflect on topics ranging from environmental rejuvenation and maternal health to poverty eradication, war, and women’s education.

About the Institute:

The Institute for Women, Religion and Globalization was founded by President Serene Jones in 2010. Today, when women hold an unprecedented opportunity to influence economic development, conflict resolution, peace-building, health conditions and environmental justice across the globe, there is a clear imperative to better understand the role of women religious practitioners as significant political agents on the global stage. As the Institute expands and gains momentum, we will continue to be in dialogue with students, alum, staff, faculty, non-profit leaders, and scholars to explore the relationship between women and religion in a globalized world.

Please note: This event is free and open to the public but you must register to attend. Due to space limitations, there is no assigned or reserved seating. We strongly encourage registered attendees and their registered guests to arrive early so that we may manage our space more effectively. The doors will open 45 minutes before the start of the event.
