As women of color, we are often held back from doing what we love due to the limitations created and perpetuated by the institutions around us. Our conference aims to provide an affinity space for self-identified girls of color to talk and connect, while uplifting the perspective of women of color at private independent schools.
In times like today when women–especially women of color–are not given as many opportunities as they deserve, it is important for us to take our space and make sure our voices are being heard. The Riot Conference team recognizes that women of color gain the most power when we take our space and find comfort in one another.
The conference is brought to you by the Riot Club*, with support from:
* The UHS Riot Club is a affinity/issue club that focuses on the intersection of race and feminism. Our goal is to spark discussions in the wider UHS community about issues relevant to women of color, as well as to provide an affinity space for self-identified girls of color to talk and connect.
