The Women of Color Summit: A Virtual Educational Series

June 3, 10, 17, and 24, 2021 

9:00am – 11:30am

Engage in discussions designed to address systemic barriers, inequities and disparities for women of color.

Thank you for your interest in the Women of Color Virtual Summit.

Women of color are influential and hold key roles within their homes, communities and organizations. The pandemic and state of race relations present serious challenges for communities of color. Now more than ever, the urgency of hearing from diverse voices is critical. This year’s theme is Healing, Restoration and Resilience.

This year’s theme; Healing, Restoration and Resilience reflects the impact of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic and how it exposed long-standing inequities by race, ethnicity, and income.  The heightened levels of disparities, losses and widespread injustices caused deep wounds, hurts and fears. These damaging consequences require a renewed level of healing of our hearts, minds, bodies and souls. Every aspect of our lives was forever changed: personal, professional, social and more. We need to hear from diverse voices about the critical components that will allow us to advance toward a healthy future for all.  Now more than ever it is important to develop action steps that will move us forward with urgency.

We encourage corporate leaders, executive leaders, diversity officers, funders, community stakeholders, educators, managers, supervisors, team leaders, coordinators and direct care staff with leadership aspirations to attend one or all sessions. We also encourage and desire participation from high school and college students.
