#SmithSpeaks

The Diversity Empowerment Council is spearheading an initiative encouraging the greater Smith community (faculty, staff, students and alumni) to share their voice through personal anecdotes about power, privilege, microaggressions, systemic oppression and other topics. Let's continue the conversation to move our country, our university and the Smith School of Business forward and make meaningful change.
