About this Event
Join the Center for Women and Gender Equity, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and the C. Raymond Marvin Center for Student Leadership and Civiz Engagement for our Women of Color Leadership Summit! This annual event brings women of color activists and entrepreneurs to BGSU to discuss the contributions women of color have made to leadership, activism, and advocacy in their communities and more broadly. This year's event includes Ambershaun Byrd, owner of Abyrdseyephoto Photography; Lenora McIntyre, Director of University of Toledo's Minority Business Development Center; Ambrea Mikolajczyk, owner of ARK Restoration; and Lacey Tezino, creator of Passport Journeys.
There will be a panel discussion open to students, faculty, staff, and community members where they will share insight on their own achievements, obstacles, and the steps they have taken to become the incredible leaders they are, and will allow audience members to ask questions as well. After the panel, the speakers will lead smaller discussion groups to allow for participants to make additional connections, identify potential mentors, and determine how they can take the next step in their own leadership path.
This event will be held virtually. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register and receive a Zoom link.
