Connecting Women of Color Conference

The Connecting Women of Color Conference fosters an open dialogue in which undergraduate women can think deeply and critically about current issues. This conference seeks to cultivate an outlet on campus focused on both intellectual and personal development in which women of color at the University of Richmond and their allies can have meaningful dialogues around issues important to them while also serving as a forum to invite women from other local universities to further the diversity work and inclusivity of the conference. The conference intentionally focuses on networking in a welcoming environment with the intentions of connecting students with women that they otherwise may not have the opportunity to meet. This 2016 conference theme was "Building Across Bridges."
