The purpose of the Empowering Women of Color Conference (EWOCC) is to build bridges between academic and community women of color, in an effort to assist them in sharing resources, strategies, and visions that will empower them at all levels of society. The Conference also strives to build networks between different generations, ethnic and racial groups, socioeconomic levels, sexual orientations, and physical abilities. Few forums exist wherein women of color are provided the space to dialogue about the issues that matter most to them. EWOCC provides such a forum.
