Women of Yale Lectures (2016-2020)

The Women of Yale Lecture Series, hosted by President Peter Salovey, showcases the accomplishments of women who graduated from the university—particularly women of color—and whose leadership reflects on the success of coeducation at Yale.  Marta Moret, a 1984 graduate of the Yale School of Public Health and the president’s wife,  proposed the idea of this speaker series.  These lectures provide the Yale community with opportunities to celebrate the rich heritage embodied in the half-century since women first enrolled in Yale College and the more than 150 years of women’s academic affiliation in Yale’s graduate and professional schools.
