Database of women ELT speakers

All of these women are conference speakers or would be interested in being. If you can click on their name, it means we have a profile and contact info for them.

If you see your name and would like to add a profile, get in touch using the contact form at the bottom of the page. If your name is not listed, but you would like it to be, also get in touch so we can add you.

** A name appearing on this list does not obligate the person named to talk at a conference or accept a plenary or any other invitation. It is simply a reference of women who are interested in doing conference talks or have been nominated by their peers as being good speakers.

This page is in alphabetical order of areas of expertise so one person may appear more than once.
