Connections. Empowerment.

The Women of Color in the Academy Conference offers faculty women of color and their allies the opportunity to learn and share specific strategies for career advancement.

The conference facilitates a more diverse academy by enhancing the timely career progression of primarily faculty, but also of staff, post-doctoral scholars and graduate students.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of interactive, hands-on workshops, as well as network with other women of color in academia throughout the Greater Boston region.
