Jing Lyman Lecture Series

The Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University offers an annual lecture named in honor of Jing Lyman. Jing Lyman has connected, fueled, and inspired the women's movement since the 1960s - both at Stanford and on the national scene. She has organized on behalf of philanthropic funding for women and girls and also played an instrumental role in the founding of the Clayman Institute.

The Jing Lyman Lecture series recognizes women and men trailblazers who contribute significantly to gender equality over their lifetime. Special emphasis will be placed on inviting those whose work has influenced the way we think about gender equality via research, journalism, building organizations, or other work that has had a lasting impact on building a society where both women and men flourish.

We are proud to announce Sheryl Sanberg as the 2013 Jing Lyman Lecturer! For more information on the event, click here.
