Mather Center’s Alicia Robinson and Anastasia Martinez present at the Faculty Women of Color in the Academy conference

Alicia Robinson and Anastasia Martinez, staff members in the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women, gave a presentation titled “HIGHER: Elevating Practices around Navigating Career Goals as Faculty of Color” at the Faculty Women of Color in the Academy (FWCA) conference Saturday, April 2.

Through their session, participants received tangible tips and advice from their peers that could launch them forward on their career trajectory and developed an action plan that outlined tangible steps to implement to push themselves forward in their career.

The FWCA conference is a unique educational and professional opportunity for indigenous and women of color in higher education to network, engage, and learn with colleagues from around the country. The 10th annual installment of FWCA will feature sessions that will explore the topics of leadership, career advancement, personal well-being and scholar activism.

This workshop was a portion of the HIGHER Women’s Leadership Summit. The vision for summit is to create space for conversations and relationships that empower women in higher education to push through challenges and to pull other women up along the way.
