During this two-day event, you will connect with distinguished alumnae and faculty of color, dynamic speakers, and current Smith students for an exciting weekend of personal and professional development.

  • Looking to expand your knowledge of diversity and inclusion
  • Looking to influence change in your community, but unsure of how to make it happen
  • Eager to learn how to use the power of your voice to advocate for yourself and others
  • Unhappy with the status quo
  • Considering a career change
