SISTER:RESISTERS Mentoring Black College Women

Friday, December 1, 2023, 12:00-1:30 PM Online via Zoom

Building upon the initiative to support a peer network and increase the advancement of Black women faculty members on the UMass Amherst campus, the Black Women United team will host the second virtual Sister: Resisters workshop titled "Mentoring Black College Women." This session will review research on Black women's experiences as undergraduate and graduate students in higher education, particularly at predominantly white universities; integrate a mentoring model and resistance strategies developmentally for this age group with attention to social, psychological, and political factors that emerge on and off campus; honor the ethnic, class, religious and sexual diversity among Black college women; and provide case studies for application. Facilitators: Janie Victoria Ward, PhD and Tracy L. Robinson-Wood, PhD.
