Faculty Women of Color in the Academy

March 28-29, 2014

Welcome

With nearly 300 attendees, 75 institutions, and 30 states represented, the inaugural Faculty Women of Color in the Academy (FWCA) National Conference was a great success! With the opportunity to listen and be heard, as the impetus of the event, we took a giant step forward in regards to identifying the concerns of faculty women of color in the Academy.

The Faculty Women of Color in the Academy National Conference is a unique educational and professional opportunity for women of color scholars. With a theme of "Taking it to the Next Level," the goal of the conference is to connect, empower, and support women as they pursue the next level of their career in the Academy.

We look forward to seeing you at the FWCA Conference March 28-29, 2014, as we explore the experiences and achievements of Faculty Women of Color in the Academy!
