The conference offers women of color faculty, university administrators, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students a unique educational and professional opportunity to network, engage, and learn with peers from around the country.

The two-day conference will feature prominent and well-known women of color scholars as keynote speakers, panelists, performers, and workshop facilitators.
