Building upon the initiative to support a peer network and increase advancement of Black women faculty members on the UMass Amherst campus, the Black Women United team will host the last of three online sessions titled Sister:Resisters that focus on mentoring Black women.

The final, workshop-style session, “Black Women’s Mentoring Tool Kit,” will be held from noon-1:30 p.m. Feb. 16, 2024, via Zoom. This session is intended to build upon the tools that mentors have acquired during the first two sessions. A primary goal is to strengthen confidence in reading, naming, opposing and replacing gendered racism that impacts Black women faculty and students and can derail their success.

Facilitators are Janie Victoria Ward, PhD and Tracy L. Robinson-Wood, PhD. For more information about Black Women United contact Cheryl Swanier at
