"There has been increased visibility on the issues Black women face in the workplace. I hope our panel will shine a light on the unique challenges higher education policies present people of color who are trying to survive and thrive within these institutions." - Ansley Valentine, Director of Blackademics, and Panel Moderator

"It’s such a necessary and needed conversation, and I’m excited CPH is making space for it to take place. I want people to be more aware of the systemic barriers Black women face on the path to higher education and learn how to do their part to support them on their way. For me, it’s an opportunity to celebrate these women!" - Colleen Jackson, Director of Community Partnerships and Programs
