Database of women plenary speakers

All of these women are conference speakers and either already have or would be more than happy to or have been nominated by people who rate them in a plenary or keynote role**. 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 have spoken in plenary (or similar) roles since November 2015*** or are interested in doing conference talks or have been nominated by their peers as being good speakers.

*** Names listed were found on conference programs on public websites or from nominations. Anyone wishing to have their name removed from the list, get in touch via the contact form at the bottom.

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