Empowerment through Her Story: Charting the Path to Greatness

Join us for a full day of leadership development and inspiration, at The Home’s first Women of Color Conference (WOC). WOC is designed to engage Boston’s most influential women working with children and families living in at risk circumstances. The conference will begin with a morning session dedicated to women of color only, which will include a keynote speaker, wellness sessions and inspiration and renewal.

In the afternoon, we invite our allies who are not women of color to join the conference and participate in two workshops of their choice.

Welcome to the Home’s first ever Women of Color Conference sponsored by the Home’s Staff of Color Affinity Group and co-sponsored by the Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College. This full-day conference is divided into two components; a morning session for women of color only and an afternoon session for Staff of Color Affinity Group allies to join with women of color to participate in the afternoon workshops and reception. We expect the day to be interesting, fun, and inspirational, and will offer to all participants a context in which to view the important work done on behalf of young women and girls of color. We look forward to seeing you there.
