The 2nd Annual Black Women’s Empowerment Conference held by the Tufts Africana Center is a one-day hybrid event scheduled for April 9, 2022, and is open and free to all Black women and femme undergraduate and graduate students attending an institute of higher education in the Northeast or across the United States. Our conference seeks to empower Black women and femme postsecondary students by providing them with the wellness, networking, and leadership skills necessary to succeed in their academic and professional careers. We hope to do this by holding lectures, panels, and workshops featuring Black women scholars, industry professionals, and influencers.
The theme for the 2022 BWEC is Radical Self-Love. Our goal is to inspire conversations about care for oneself and one’s community and to uplift Black women by holding in-person and virtually accessible lectures, panels, and workshops featuring Black women scholars, industry professionals, and influencers.
At our inaugural conference in spring 2022, themed “I Am Because We Are,” we held 10+ Workshops, Panels and Other Sessions | 40+ Speakers | 1 Keynote Speaker | Virtual Social Events
