Celebrating Resilient Feminism

Celebrating Resilient Feminism

5:30 – 8 PM on Thursday, March 30

Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center, Unity Room 1

Historically, womxn of color have been overlooked in movements for social justice. Additionally, we seldom see womxn of color highlighted at leadership events. “Celebrating Resilient Feminism” will create a space to celebrate womxn of color leaders and their achievements, listen to their perspectives, and learn from their lessons. The event will include a panel portion followed by a more intimate workshop component, in which attendants can converse in groups with the panelists. Topics will include a discussion of identity and maintaining integrity to self, overcoming challenges, incorporating diversity, difference, and equity into public and nonprofit work, and how we can create pathways for more womxn of coloras leaders in the community. Join us for a panel, hosted by womxn of color and our allies, to celebrate the resilience and achievements of womxn of color in our community.

Hosts: EPOC, PCD, and ESO, three student groups from the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance
