Deadline to apply for registration: Friday, April 12, at 11:59 p.m.

This retreat aims to facilitate a dialogue between working professionals and students about how to navigate the professional space as women of color. "Women of color" is defined as women of African, Asian, Latina and/or Native American ancestry.

Participants will engage in a dialogue regarding the range of circumstances that women of color face and how they may network, acquire mentors and/or sponsors and employ other strategies to advance professionally while staying true to themselves. Workshop discussions will not only foreground how to transition from college to the workplace but also build supportive networks within the Amherst family.

There is limited space for this event (30 students max). In the event of a wait list, student registration confirmations will be based on application responses. Confirmations will be sent on Tuesday, April 16.
In order to secure your attendance, a refundable deposit of $10 must be made to the Career Center by Thursday, April 18, by noon, since brunch will be provided. Registrations without the deposit will be forfeited, and the wait list will be notified accordingly. This deposit will be refunded to all participants in attendance on the day of the event. Students in need of financial assistance can contact Christina Ramos at 413-542-8419 or at cramos@amherst.edu for a waiver.
