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 spring semester the WOC support group will meet weekly starting Feb. 6th through Apr. 24th. The group will NOT meet during Spring Break, Mar. 20th. Sessions are from 5:00pm-6:30 pm and always held in 302 Diana Center.
