Distinguished Scholar Series

(Hosted by Georgia Institute of Technology’s, Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, and in partnership with WomenAcademy)

The diversity among women is as real as the many challenges they face. There is a need to bridge this gap and build connections to improve understanding and opportunities that promote and support each other.


The Distinguished Scholars Series focuses on intimate discussions with national and international experts who articulate the status of women and girls internationally. Individuals from academia, corporations, the community, international foundations and non-profit organizations will come together to review and participate in discussions on important causes, such as women in leadership, education, economic security and health.  


Participants will walk away with specific actions they can take back to their institutions to expand awareness of women’s issues and effect change.


IWTT’s partners with the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts at Georgia Institute of Technology (IAC) and AcademyWomen to bring the Distinguished Scholars Series to you.  IAC is a major research institution and brings human-centered concerns to the intersections of humanities, social sciences and technology.
