The Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach and the Cultural Centers are excited to present the University of San Francisco (USF) Womxn of Color Leadership Conference. By drawing on our past, reflecting on our present, and envisioning our future the USF Womxn of Color Leadership Conference creates a cross-cultural space for sharing and building with and for each other that will harness and develop the individual and collective capacity of womxn of color leaders.
The goal of this conference is to provide an intergenerational space for womxn of color to come together to build individual and community capacity towards justice. This year we want to reaffirm our commitment to providing a space committed to racial justice. These current times are challenging and we recognize that our current moment requires us to uplift and center the voices and experiences of those that are most marginalized.
This conference will be online over Zoom.
As a community, we understand that there is no single story when it comes to being womxn and we recognize the systemic oppression of marginalized genders. Our use of the “x” in womxn demonstrates our intentional effort to recognize that there are also feminine-identifying non-binary and genderqueer people that experience the effects of sexism and genderism. We welcome all womxn of color, including those who identify as transgender, non-binary, or genderqueer. The “x” asserts that not everyone identifies within the gender binary. This allows us to collectively consider the struggle and resilience of those in our communities that identify as transgender, non-binary, and genderqueer.
USF accommodates individuals with disabilities. If you need a disability-related accommodation, please contact the Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach at firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 422-2821. Requests should be made by at least 14 days in advance of the event.
This event is open to all USF community members and the general public. While registration is free, we welcome sliding scale donations to help offset the cost of the conference. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
