Time: 3:30 - 5:30pm Venue: The Women's Cafe, St Benet's Chaplaincy Yurt, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Campus
We are launching The Women’s Cafe at Queen Mary University of London! Come and join BreakThrough! for a chilled out afternoon, talking about things that matter to women of colour and impact our experiences of university life.
Join us every last Monday of the month from 3.30pm-5.30pm, at the St Benet’s Chaplaincy yurt. Free hot drinks and snacks provided.
Speak your mind in a supportive, alcohol-free space where your reflections will become part of how BreakThrough! develop further interventions and recommendations aimed at equalising women of colour’s success and opportunities
The Spring Series of talks will start with:
Monday 28th January 2019 – Are Women of Colour being listened to? We discuss the barriers and challenges we face as women of colour at university. In particular, we discuss the problems with current provisions for dealing with complaints, anxieties and discrimination women of colour face on campus and in the curriculum.
The Women’s Cafe opening hours
Monday 25th February 2019 – Who do Women of Colour look up to?We ask who makes a good role model for women of colour and why are role models so difficult to find at universities?
Monday 25th March 2019 – Women of Colour in Careers – How do we navigate barriers to gaining professional employment? Women of colour are least likely to find graduate work and when they do, they are often underpaid and battle to get a promotion. We will explore these issues together in today’s session.
Monday 29th April 2019 – Panel discussion and discussion: Women of Colour narratives of surviving and thriving as entrepreneurs. Join us for a panel discussion with women of colour entrepreneurs who have built successful businesses outside of white privileged structures.
