Empowering Women of Color

Empowering women of color

Barbara Burdick, coordinator of "Empowering Women of Color" noted that the group celebrated its first year of activities. Twenty-six American women of color participated in this year's activities.

Goals of the project included strengthening leadership abilities; bridging cultural roots, both within individual cultures and cross culturally; strengthening retention rates; and improving graduation rates.

Successes have been apparent this year, as several of the women have been elected to positions of leadership throughout the campus including Women in Management, the Stout Student Association (SSA) and multicultural organizations. Campus and community support has been important and well received. The Foundation funded the program for 1994-1997.
