Description

Michelle Rosa, Graduate Student, College Student Personnel; and Athina Chartelain, Graduate Student, College Student Personnel. Around the U. S., women of color on college campuses are increasingly convening sister circles as safe havens to provide each other with self‐awareness, bonding, and emotional and spiritual support. This workshop aims to empower and support underrepresented female students at the University of Rhode Island while creating discussions about pressing issues facing women in today’s society. As the first of a series of workshops this fall, this Sister Circle will utilize small group discussion, large group activities, and structured self‐reflection to explore “being your authentic self” as a woman of color at URI. Undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff of color are invited to create a support network that will encourage each other's academic and professional success and personal growth.
