Cherrel Miller Dyce delivers opening keynote remarks for Women of Color Institute
Assistant Professor Cherrel Miller Dyce in the School of Education gave the opening keynote speech on April 12, 2014, for the second annual Women of Color Institute held at Elon University.
The Women of Color Institute aims to empower, inspire and motivate women of color or those who identify as ALANA (Asian, Latina, African, Native American), and bi- or multiracial.
As such, the mission is to create an environment that promotes personal, educational and, professional development for this population. Miller Dyce’s keynote was titled "Leading with SWAG: Solidarity, Worldview, Audience and Grace."
The Women of Color Institute started in 2013 to bring women of color on Elon’s campus together to share experiences, discuss what it means to be a woman of color at Elon University, and to develop personal and leadership skills through interactive workshops.
Some of the themes discussed at this year’s Women of Color Institute were: Making Meaning of Experiences, Personal Branding, Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship, and Life After College.
Members of the planning committee included: D’Netria Spear ’15, Jordan Only ’14, Manuela Mbouma ’14, Le To ‘15, Anajulia Almonte ’14, Rihana Spinner ‘15 and Alisha Carter ’15.
