Judith, Judith, Judith!, Moderates Girls of Color & The Women They Become:Success Through Independent School


In the spirit of mentoring our girls, Judith Ohikuare will moderate an accomplished alumnae panel on Saturday, April 12, at her alma mater, The Chapin School.

RIISE first met Judith and her authentic voice – as a journalist and graduate of color from an elite independent school, through her article entitled, When Minorities Attend Elite Private Schools. It is refreshing to have her article among the many not written by a student of color. As a voice representing young women, we were delighted Judith agreed to moderate our upcoming event inviting girls grades 6-12. Caregivers are encouraged to register too!-  registration open).

We are very excited about this opportunity to support and give voice to young women attending some of the most elite and privileged white institutions in the country. This academic journey can come with social and emotional  risks. So with the help of Judith, Chapin, Alumnae, and You, we’ll push the boundaries with mentoring ways that will help girls of color thrive in the academy, and beyond.
