The Women Inspire speaker series showcases outstanding women faculty whose research is making a significant impact and who serve as powerful and inspirational role models to the campus community.
In 2018, the Women Inspire Speaker Series was integrated into the AofW. Previously established through a co-sponsorship of the Office of the Provost and the Women’s Philanthropy Initiative, this speaker series provides a platform for outstanding Georgia State women faculty to share their research with a broader Georgia State audience.
We are currently soliciting nominations for speakers for the 2018-19 academic year. Nominees need to be tenured women faculty holding the rank of full professor at Georgia State University. Exceptions to these criteria will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please use the link below to submit your nominations:
