Established in 2012 with a grant from the Center of Multicultural Excellence, the Sistah Network provides women who identify as Black, in graduate programs across the University of Denver, opportunities for academic and professional development. To do this work well, the Sistah Network also promotes and facilitates the psychological, social, and emotional success of Black women in graduate programs. This mission is grounded in Black Feminist Thought which posits that Black women need safe spaces to participate in activities that give them voice, self-definition, and belonging (Collins, 2000).
