Who We Are

The STEM Women of Color Conclave annually comes together as the largest national assembly of women faculty of color, representing all academic STEM disciplines.

"Enough is Enough"

Enough – whether shouted with authority or quietly whispered in exasperation; whether used to scold a child or quell the chaos; or whether said with an audible voice, a hand gesture, a glaring stare, a soulful moan, or with complicated silence – the word enough has so many meanings for women of color who are not just distressed but who are now also distressed and determined. But determined to do what?

 

Join us as we welcome STEM women faculty and administrators of color from the U.S. and Africa for the 2024 STEM Women of Color Conclave and Leadership Colloquium. This year, for the first time since the outbreak of COVID, we will convene in-person to revisit the past several pandemic years and assess the toll it has disproportionately taken on STEM women of color in the academy. We will also lay a foundation for building new skillsets and workstyles that will arm us with tools to contemplate, confront, and counteract the destructive impact of higher education powers, policies, and principalities that have, for far too long, robbed us of Freedom, Joy, Health, Happiness, Friendships, Scholarship, Productivity, Recognition, Allies, Sponsors, Peace, Abundance, Wholeness, and Wellness. At this conference, we will 1) determine a future for ourselves and those we serve and love; 2) engage nationally renowned feminist scholars, former and current STEM leaders, executive academic coaches, and other experts, guides, researchers, and advisors in rich, critical discourse; 3) participate in collective and individual thought mapping; 4) deepen our understanding of triple consciousness – woman, of color, and in STEM; and 5) foster and nurture our connections to each other, our greater purpose in life, and our Source.

The Conclave serves as a catalyst for harnessing a centralized body of knowledge and best practices related to women of color and holistically promoting the personal and professional development of women of color in the academy.
