Sister Circle is a safe space that allows Black female students to be themselves without boundaries and helps them meet other Black women with similar and varying feelings. Sister Circle’s goal is to support the holistic student experience for Black Women Collegians (BWC), by providing a safe space to be oneself, unapologetically, to engage in social identity development, to learn about and be inspired by Black people in history that are not acknowledged for their contributions, to support one another through challenges and obstacles that are unique to Women of Color, particularly at a PWI. This counter-space also provides an opportunity to address shared concerns that manifest in the students’ lives and empowers them to thrive and succeed here at Piedmont. The collective themes are guidance, support, safe space, healing place, empowerment, and building relationships. Sister Circle aims to encourage a stronger sense of self and belonging, remind the BWC that they are “good enough” in their quest for a college education, and combat social isolation.
