"I Am Because We Are"
Student Outreach Services presents The 2013 Women of Color Empowerment Dinner, which serves to unify and create dialogue amongst students, staff, faculty, and community members willing to learn from the collective pressures of race and ethnic relations that women of color face with each experience. Contributing to diversity on campus, the dinner provided an opportunity for the WWU community to share their voices in a supportive atmosphere. Furthermore, students were encouraged and empowered to persist in their higher education pursuits at Western. This powerful event focuses on the struggles, triumphs, and experiences of women of color and their allies and celebrates the professional accomplishments and personal successes of women of color throughout our community.
The 15th annual dinner will be held Friday, May 17, 2013. The event showcases student talent, keynote speakers, presentation of the Women of Color Empowerment Award and Women of Color Empowerment Scholarship, and fundraising efforts.
