Calendar of events

During the spring and fall academic semesters, the Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW) invites the public to learn, in person, about the work of WCW researchers and program staff at its Lunchtime Seminar Series. The programs are free, and topics of discussion include the Centers' key areas of focus: education, economic security, mental health, youth and adolescent development, and gender-based violence.

In addition to the Lunchtime Seminar Series, researchers and program staff at WCW occasionally serve as speakers or trainers at other WCW events as well as programs sponsored by professional associations and community organizations, most of which are open to the public. Below are some upcoming events featuring speakers from WCW, including our Lunchtime Seminar Series. For events that are not hosted by WCW, please refer to the sponsoring organization for complete details.
