The Duke Women’s Center is looking to start a mentoring program for Women of Color on Duke’s campus. Informed by feminist, womanist, and social justice principles and theory, we are seeking to create a space for Women of Color to grow into their authentic selves through connection with others, to learn to exercise agency and creativity in their daily lives, and to feel supported and empowered in all that they do.  

Through this program, we hope to: 

  • Create a community for Women of Color across campus to feel safe and supported 
  • Encourage conversation around the spaces where gender, race, ethnicity, cultural background intersect  
  • Lay the foundation for the development of authentic women leaders through community engagement and professional development
