The Students of Color Committee prides itself in creating spaces where students can continue to question, challenge and cultivate their minds in order to advance personal growth, commitment, and social advocacy for historically underrepresented communities. In addition, we strive to encourage open dialogues and raise consciousness about issues and intersections prevalent in modern day society regarding race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and many more identities. This year, we would like to continue this tradition and open the Women of Color Trailblazers Leadership Conference to all self- identifying women of color across the Five Colleges alongside faculty, staff, and community members. The theme for the 2017 conference is “Empowering Voices: Breaking Boundaries, Creating Change,” featuring keynote speaker Staceyann Chin. This conference will consist of workshops that focus on the topics of peer networking, professional and personal development, and leadership opportunities. Most importantly, this conference will provide a space to celebrate the lives and accomplishments of women of color.
