# WOCEDChat Online

Created by Women of Color, for Everyone.

Our Story

We are a community of women who are committed to uplifting girls and women of color.

Our mission is to cultivate a shared, safe, and meaningful space for women and girls of color in education to lead, achieve, and succeed.


Focusing on Our Educators

Women of Color in Education can often feel alone and marginalized. It is the mission of #WOCEDChat to create a space that is welcoming, inclusive, and diverse that celebrates the achievements, accomplishments, and acknowledges the adversity that Women of Color face in the education profession. We will combat the marginalization by amplifying the voices of Women of Color and their allies, creating affinity spaces, and designing opportunities for learning for our educators.


Caring for our young girls of color.

Providing Girls of Color with a mirror in which they can see themselves reflected is one of the goals we have set out to accomplish. Our girls are punished more often and more harshly than their counterparts who are not of color. While we recognize and realize the struggles our boys of color face, we acknowledge that there are not enough spaces for our Girls of Color to learn and grow from Women of Color. Michelle Obama said, “We love our boys, and we raise our girls.” Too often, we think our girls need to be strong all the time, forgetting that they need our love, our empathy, and our kindness too.

We want to empower our girls of color through providing basic needs, social and emotional learning, and ensuring that they learn in an anti-racist space that provides them with social and emotional justice. We accomplish this by providing learning for educators, partnerships with schools that have a need, and creating an affinity space for our girls of color through #WOCEDChat.

It’s important to understand the challenges when it comes to our women and girls in education. This space is important because we focus on:
