The Womxn of Color Symposiumis a professional development opportunity for women-identified UToledo students, employees and faculty of color, as well as members of the broader community. The symposium is designed to expand skills, increase knowledge, and enhance networks to promote a more inclusive and supportive working and learning environment at The University of Toledo. This year’s theme—“Reclaiming Our Space(s)”—focuses on the ways that navigating predominantly white spaces impacts the mental, physical and overall well-being of womxn of color.  

Featuring keynote speaker, Christina Brown, "There's Nothing Respectable about Respectability Politics":

A talk about navigating a world of respectability politics and the silencing that takes place against women of color. This will be a reminder in knowing how to confidently and unapologetically use one's voice in spaces that try to actively diminish our power.
