Ronin Institute Women Interest Group

The Ronin Women’s group examines professional development and work/life balance through a feminist lens. Our goal is to create a virtual space for discussion and support of women scholars while collaborating on initiatives that develop from our meetings. We are a women focused group but are not exclusive to women, and welcome any scholars who share our mission. Meetings are once a month, usually the third Wednesday of every month at 10AM PT/1PM ET (United States).

The founding members are Sheilamae Ablay, Amy Collins, Jacqueline Kory-Westlund, Ponn Mahayosnand, Emily Monosson and Arika Virapongse (Ronin Community Director).
