This event is sold out.

Women of color embody a vibrant tapestry of identity who have unique experiences in the higher education landscape. Engaging in open dialogue and forging connections with each other leads to a more inclusive and supportive environment. This gathering aims to create a safe space for faculty and staff who identify as women of color and their allies within the Tri-Campus Community to learn about and practice building a supportive community on campus through powerful conversations, storytelling, and compassion. The gathering will begin with a workshop led by Lani Peterson, a psychologist and executive coach who specializes in the application of narrative as a medium for personal growth, connection, and change, and culminate with a reception to enhance participants’ social networks with active community members and resources on campus.

This gathering is not just a moment; it's a curated transformative experience that aims to uplift, inspire, and create lasting connections. Collectively, we will weave the threads of unity and strength for a brighter, more connected community at Notre Dame.

Sponsors of this gathering include the Office of the Provost, the Office of Institutional Transformation, Notre Dame Human Resources, Thrive!, ND Elevate, Notre Dame Enrollment, Mendoza College of Business, and the Indigenous Faculty and Staff Employee Resource Group.
