Every Wednesday during Black History Month, MWANAFUNZI hosted Diversity Workgroup lunch sessions that offered fresh perspectives and invaluable conversations. They focused on the following topics such as Imposter Syndrome, the History of Violence & Trauma in Communities of Color, Racial Battle Fatigue: an Intersectional Lens, and Hair, So What?: Hair and Self-esteem in College Women. These informal conversations were selected by students and open to all. The college’s students, faculty and staff attended in record numbers!
MWANAFUNZI, Swahili for “student,” strives to promote unity and cohesiveness among minority students and the professional community. MWANAFUNZI provides a forum for African American students in social work, and related fields, to exchange ideas and promote activities, services and programs to strengthen the African American community.
