On Saturday, March 15, 2014, the University of California at Berkeley’s Women of Color Initiative and Graduate Assembly will host the 29th Annual Empowering Women of Color Conference (EWOCC). Our purpose is to build bridges between academic and community women of color in an effort to assist them in sharing resources, strategies, and visions that will empower them at all levels of society. EWOCC strives to build networks among different generations, ethnic and racial groups, socioeconomic levels, sexual orientations, and physical abilities. Few forums exist wherein women of color are provided the space to dialogue about the issues that matter most to them. EWOCC provides such a forum.
