Join us to hear graduate students and faculty of color share their own stories of success and struggle and discuss tools and strategies for building lasting relationships and staying motivated and energized as academics.

As a member of the ACC, UofL has been able to sponsor several graduate students & faculty to attend the Women Faculty of Color conference which aims to help current faculty and emerging scholars of color “gain lessons, ideas, tools, and strategies to bring back to their institutions, organizations, and communities; make new contacts and build lasting relationships; [and become more] inspired, motivated, energized, and empowered.” 

The women who have been sponsored to attend the conference will serve as panelists for our annual Women’s Panel. The panelists will share some of the tools and strategies they learn at the conference and share their own stories, including their struggles and successes, as women faculty of color.

Panelists include: Khirsten Echols, PhD Student, Department of English - Rhetoric and Composition; Sara Alvarez, PhD Student, Department of English - Rhetoric and Composition; Jelisa Clark, PhD Student, Department of Sociology; Ashanka Kumari, PhD Student, Department of English - Rhetoric and Composition; Dr. J’Amie Jennings, Assistant Professor, Department of Health Management and Systems Sciences; Dr. Detra Johnson, Assistant Professor, Department of Educational Leadership, Evaluation, and Organizational Development; and moderator Dr. Latonia Craig, Associate Director of Admissions and Diversity Recruitment, School of Interdisciplinary and Graduate Studies.
