University of Vermont

Center for Cultural Pluralism

Sisterhood Circle is an opportunity for women of color at UVM to have a safe space to discuss various topics in a supportive environment - one in which women can reflect on the issues, share their experiences, listen to each other, and think about how to improve their own lives and their communities through the synergistic power of the Circle.

The format of the meeting is also conducive to intimate conversation. During the meeting members partake of communal food, always including a homemade soup, and discussion. Past topics have included "Islam and Women", "Interracial Relationships" and "Our Sheroes".

This group is open to all women of color whether student, staff or faculty. One of its strengths is the opportunity for multi-generational discussions where women can discuss how things have changed over the years for the better and the worse.

"One of the most valuable things we can do to heal one another is listen to each other's stories" - Courtney Campbell
