Smith Alums of Color: Conference!

15Mar10

A few words from Ilena Jimenez ’97 about an amazing upcoming conference at Smith:

Are you looking to reconnect with amazing Smith alumnae of color? I know I am. That’s why I am going to Legacy in the Making: A Conference for Smith Alumnae of Color from April 16-18. I am on the planning committee and we have put together a truly phenomenal program that will cover issues of women in color in leadership, cultural identity, LGBT identity, professional development, self-care, and national and global issues such as education, politics, and the economy. You don’t want to miss this! Partial scholarships are available.

The whole event starts with a fabulous keynote by Smith Professor Paula J. Giddings speaking on Friday, April 16. On Saturday night, we will have the opportunity to connect with current Smith students of color as well as prospective students of color during a dessert reception at the Alumnae House. The event ends on Sunday morning with a panel on self-care, an issue we all care about very much!

(As part of our conference community outreach, don’t forget to bring a book or gift certificate to support the Loíza Library in Puerto Rico. Loíza Library was recently featured in the Smith Alumnae Quarterly.)
