November 2019 Luncheon

Our Luncheon Meeting took place on November 11, 2019, at Engineering Education and Research Center.

Our invited student speakers, Christina Cho, Rebecca Chen, Vida Nwadiei, and Timia Bethea will give a talk titled, “Advocacy & Education on Colorism.”

Last fall, these four undergraduate women were awarded UT’s inaugural President’s Award for Global Learning to carry out their research on colorism in Ghana and at UT Austin. Colorism is the preferential treatment of people with a slimmer nose, bigger eyes, chiseled jaw, and lighter skin; these features are believed to make someone more desirable, successful, and intelligent!!

A lunch from Mom’s Taste (Korean Food) was served.
