At Woodhull we understand that all issues are “women’s” issues from social justice to education, from the constitution to the economy, from science and politics to mathematics. To that end, Woodhull has reached out to women experts in all fields. Woodhull Fellows do not share a single partisan or political position; they stand across the political spectrum. What they do share is the commitment to raise issues in a conscientious way, to encourage open debate, to challenge and to enlighten public discussion in America. Woodhull Fellows are selected by a committee, they are experts in their fields and they have committed to to lead with honesty, respect, courage and compassion; to strive for the common ground in decision-making; and to share in community service.
Woodhull Fellows are available for speaking engagements. Please forward all quesitons and booking requests to: Wende Jager-Hyman, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
