Women of Color Collective

Women of Color Collective (WOCC) was established in 2018 to bring together self-identified women of color (including Arab/Middle Eastern, Asian/Pacific Islander, Black/African, Latinx, Native/Indigenous, and Multiracial) to foster a sense of community and solidarity. We welcome students, faculty, and staff who identify as a woman of color at Union College. Women of Color Collective has been instrumental in providing opportunities for self-identified women of color to connect with one another and share personal, academic, professional, and social challenges.

Activities include dinner discussions, collaborative events, and social outings related to the topics of identity, culture, wellness, spirituality, healthy relationships, politics, and personal development.
