The Working Womxn of Color Conference is the first iteration of a conference series curated by Chroma, a collaborative project which employs self-actualization as an organizing principle to think, construct and shape powerful narratives of mobility by womxn of color.
“The idea for this conference was planted in the summer of 2017 after the “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” rule, which barred companies from receiving federal contracts if they had a history of violating wage, labor or workplace safety laws, was cancelled. This was one of the few policies implemented during the Obama administration in an attempt to close the wage gap. In response and resistance to the rise of executive orders that disproportionately affect people of color, we gather in order to discuss the ways in which we can create our own resource library for opportunities. We have designed this conference from a social justice perspective and with the intention of creating useful archival material to highlight female/femme agency through modes of self-actualization. We aim to create a cross-disciplinary conference that brings self-actualized womxn of color together in order to share our stories and resources.” 2017--
