My Sister Myself
Baylor University's "My Sister, MySelf" is a unique series of monthly meetings dedicated to addressing contemporary issues facing Black Women and Women of Color. Our goal is to share information on ways in which we can improve ourselves individually and collectively in the community, home, and professional world.
We desire to create a comfortable environment where in-depth discussion can encourage self-improvement, community and cultural awareness and global thinking. Most importantly, My Sister, Myself seeks to facilitate a casual space where participants can be encouraged and refreshed through fellowship.
November 4th 6-7 pm BDSC Loessin
Latinas Unidas is a community support program for women of all Latin American backgrounds. In our meetings, we come together in an environment that promotes empowerment, self-improvement, cultural awareness, fellowship, and mentorship. Latinas Unidas provides safety, supportive relationships, and community involvement to effectively impact student’s overall well-being. Our goal is to help our students find a sense of belonging in the Baylor community, initiate reflection and discussion, and promote academic success, professional growth and leadership development through mentorship with Latina staff/faculty members.
