Women of Color Academic Conference: Cultivating New Directions for Self-Determination

The 2014 Second Annual UC Davis Women of Color Conference is an opportunity to share your research, network with students and faculty, and engage in critical discussions on the experiences of women of color in academia.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the UC Davis Women of Color Conference is three-fold. First, to provide a safe and supportive forum for self-identified women of color to present their research. Second, to identify particularities that self-identified women of color encounter in the academy.  Third, to provide an interdisciplinary forum that will provide a space to critically and constructively discuss research and methodology, as well as important issues facing women of color in academia.

Conference Goals:

●      To create space within the university for the recognition of undergraduate and graduate women of color scholarship, across all disciplines and methodologies

●      To provide a forum for critical dialogue on the experiences of women of color in academia

●      To support the professional and personal growth of women of color in the university

●      To encourage women of color scholars to build networks and develop connections with other students and faculty on campus

Conference Details:

The conference is scheduled for Saturday, May 10, 2014 and will take place at the Student Community Center (SCC) on the UC Davis campus.  This event is open to all UC Davis community members.
