Women of Worth (W) Initiative Inaugural Conference: The Strength Of Our Stories
March 4 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
The Women of Worth (W) Initiative Inaugural Conference theme is The Strength of Our Stories, inspired by Rupi Kaur’s poem – ‘Women of Color.’ This conference aims to center the voices of UNC Chapel Hill’s women of color and indigenous women (Black, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, Pacific Islander, Multi-Racial, etc.), provide tools and resources to help combat negative representations and trends, and create a collaborative sense of community. It is our goal for conference attendees to learn to cultivate self-worth and to identify sources of empowerment for all of us to become our best selves.
The conference is open to all UNC students (undergraduate & graduate) as well as faculty & staff.
Registration will open on Wednesday, February 8th, 2017 and will close on Friday, February 24th, 2017.
