Sale price$399.00


Create Strategic Programs to Support Their Engagement, Satisfaction & Persistence

Recent research suggests that women of color who consistently engage with mentors experience more positive wellbeing, lower rates of college dropout, greater satisfaction with their college experience, a higher GPA and academic performance, and have more success making post-college professional plans.*

Bridge the gap between academic and co-curricular divisions to become an essential resource to women of color who seek a relationship that helps them navigate institutional barriers by engaging across the racial, ethnic, and cultural divide. Our expert presenter outlines these challenges and others relating to working with students of color, best practices, and her personal experiences so you can better help women of color on your campus succeed.

Engage in valuable discussion about how you can better support and serve this population — build your capacity to better mentor across racial and ethnic lines.
