Diversity Initiatives and the Furman Counseling Center have partnered to provide a weekly support group for women of color at Barnard. Facilitated by trained clinicians and professional staff members, the focus of the group is to provide a supportive atmosphere where women of diverse cultural backgrounds can engage in discussion and self expression related to the challenges, celebrations, and complexities related to their life at Barnard. Topics include but are not limited to: academics, racism, stress management, body image and hair, sexuality, and healthy relationships.
During the 2013 fall semester the Women of Color Support Group will meet weekly starting October 2nd through December 4th. The group will not meet on 11/27/13 (day before Thanksgiving break). Sessions are from 5:00pm-6:30 pm and are held in Sulzberger North Tower room.
