“At the Invitation of the President” is a series of events that celebrate savvy women who are artists, authors, performers, philanthropists, industry thought leaders and social change makers. The series aims to inspire our current students — the next generation of women leaders — by offering unique opportunities to hear from and network with women who are established leaders in their fields. Events in the series are supported by gifts to Sweet Briar College and are free and open to the public. We look forward to hosting more events throughout the semester and we hope you’ll join us.

  • The first event in the series was the Vivaldi Project, an all-women period instrument ensemble dedicated to presenting a 17th- and 18th-century string repertoire. Click here to learn more.
  • The second event in the series will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 20, and features Liza Mundy, author of “Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers Who Helped Win World War II.” Her talk will begin at 6 p.m. at The Florence Elston Inn & Conference Center and will be followed by a book signing and reception.

As we add more events to the series, we’ll post information here.
