The FWCA conference offers women of color faculty, university administrators, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and undergraduates a unique educational and professional opportunity to network, engage, and learn with peers from around the country.

The two-day conference, held at the Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center in Blacksburg, Virginia, will feature prominent and well-known women of color scholars as keynote speakers, panelists, performers, and workshop facilitators.

We are excited this year to announce that Dr. Melissa Harris Perry, Nikki Giovanni and Dr. Henrietta Mann will be delivering keynotes for the conference.
