Finding Your Voice: Women of Color Group

Are you a woman of color who is struggling to work in a predominantly White campus or community? As women of color who come from a variety of backgrounds (e.g., African American/Black, Latina/Hispanic, Asian American, Pacific Islander, American Indian, Middle Eastern/Arab American, and others), we have experiences that are unique to our individual backgrounds but also hold many common connections. 

This discussion group can provide a safe place to share some of your struggles as well as some of our ways of coping, strengths, and resources.Women of Color Flyer
