Black Women’s Work Symposium

The University of Chicago Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice invites you to join us for the Black Women’s Work Symposium. It is a unique gathering designed to provide Black women at the University of Chicago and beyond with a dedicated space for reflection on their labor within various dimensions of life, including community, institutions, families, and healing. Our mission is to create an inclusive platform for sharing the narratives and stories of Black women and the impact of labor on their well-being, families, communities, and healing journeys.

This symposium offers an invaluable opportunity to discuss and explore the pivotal role that labor plays in the lives of Black women, examining how it can be a site for both oppression and liberation, as well as a space for organizing and empowerment.

This event welcomes participants from all backgrounds and attendance is open to all.

If you have any questions about access or to request a reasonable accommodation that will facilitate your full participation in this event such as ASL interpreting, captioned videos, Braille or electronic text, food options for individuals with dietary restrictions, etc. please contact the event organizer.
