Sister Circle

SisterCircle is a group of women of color at Columbia University

Sister Circle, established in 2003, is a program that brings together self-identified women of color (including Arab/Middle Eastern, Asian/Pacific Islander, Black/African, Latinx, Native/Indigenous and Multiracial) to foster a sense of community and solidarity. We are open to the undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff of all Columbia University schools.

Sister Circle has been instrumental in providing opportunities for self-identified women of color to connect with one another and examine personal, academic, professional and social challenges. Sister Circle activities include biweekly dinner discussions, collaborative events, and social outings related to the topics of identity, culture, wellness, spirituality, healthy relationships, politics and personal development.
