togetHER aims to inspire the College of Saint Benedict’s high-achieving first and second year women of color to become both local and global leaders by engaging in academic exploration, service-based leadership, and community building.  

togetHER is a semester long commitment which will launch in the Spring of 2023.


We are seeking to create a community that provides historically excluded BIPOC women with opportunities to engage in professional and service-based experiences, develop their personal and unique brand of leadership, and increase their self-assurance to diversify the amount of Saint Ben’s students in male-dominated academic programs including but not limited to Global Business Leadership, Accounting and Finance, Entrepreneurship, and Economics.  

Through personal and group experiences, togetHER will: 

  1. Create a safe space for women of color at CSB.  
  2. Close the gender gap within majors such as Economics, Global Business, and Accounting and Finance.  
  3. Work together to create a product or service that will lead to sustainable change.  
  4. Develop strong future leaders on the College of Saint Benedict’s campus.  Develop students’ ability to advocate for themselves and others inside and outside the classroom (catalysts for change). 
  5. Participate in social interactions together to gain knowledge and experience in different skills, such as networking, leadership, and community building. 
  6. Provide opportunities for students to grow their networks through XPD and Alumnae Relations. 
  7. Provide Scholars the tools to navigate and reduce feelings of Imposter Syndrome. 

Together We Reach Out For a More Inclusive Community
