PLAN Workshop - Women's Panel

Description. As a member of the ACC, UofL has been able to sponsor several graduate students and faculty to attend the Women Faculty of Color conference at Virginia Tech. The conference aims to help current faculty and emerging scholars of color “gain lessons, ideas, tools, and strategies to bring back to their institutions, organizations, and communities; make new contacts and build lasting relationships; [and become more] inspired, motivated, energized, and empowered.” 

The women who have been sponsored to attend the conference will serve as panelists for our annual Women’s Panel. The panelists will share some of the tools and strategies they learn at the conference and share their own stories, including their struggles and successes, as women faculty of color.
