Call for Proposals!
DEADLINE: Thursday, March 15, 2018
The University of Georgia School of Law is proud to organize and host the inaugural Women’s Leadership in Academia Conference. This Conference strives to address the concerns and needs voiced by our respective communities. In response to suggestions from colleagues across the nation, this Conference will offer programming focused on building skills and providing tools and information that are directly applicable to women in legal education looking to be leaders within the academy.
To help us create targeted programs of interest, we are looking to the expertise within our diverse community. We invite you to submit a proposal for a conference session. The Planning Committee is looking for proposals in a variety of formats, including hands-on workshops, panel presentations, roundtables, and short lectures. However, we are open to all suggestions and encourage creativity and collaboration with your colleagues. All proposal topics should address the unique perspective and challenges of women, and provide programming that will be useful to developing leaders. We ask all proposed sessions to not exceed 55 minutes in duration. Proposals that provide an intersectional approach to topics are encouraged.
