The Center for Feminist Research and the Gender Studies Program at USC Women are pleased to announce that Diana Nyad will be speaking at our 11th annual Women in Higher Education luncheon.


Diana Nyad is an American swimmer and world record holder. She was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 1986. Nyad was honored with her induction in the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2003. She currently provides a five-minute radio piece on sports every week for KCRW and National Public Radio called The Score, as well as for the Marketplace radio program.

This incredibly popular luncheon is open to all members of the faculty, staff, student and administration community. Our luncheon has been sold out in the past four years.  Last year, we provided an opportunity for individuals to meet in a networking lunch.  In addition to Diana’s presentation, we will also continue these networking opportunities. We look forward to having you join us!
