The EWOC hosts a distinguished keynote speaker, expert panelists, and workshops to exchange ideas and provide mentorship. The simultaneous YWS, reaching ages 12-21, features workshops to help young women expand their vision and pursue desired careers by connecting them with successful, professional women eager to share what they know with the next generation of women leaders.



Sac Cultural Hub Media Foundation (SCHMF)—was created in 2003 to develop programs that mentor young adults and women of color in under-served communities. SCHMF has implemented programs in partnership with corporations and businesses to promote mentorship, higher education, provide entrepreneurship opportunities, further diverse partnerships, encourage collaboration in the community, offer educational workshops and exceptional signature events that include: Exceptional Women of Color (EWOC) Networking Brunch Conference, Hub Choice Awards (HCA), and the Black Physicians Forum (BPF).  Our mission is to provide exciting non traditional vehicles of engagement where professionals, businesses and non-profit organizations can market services and products, mentor those in need, and provide public service information to educate and inspire the urban community. The Foundation’s primary goal is to motivate and empower African American professionals, communities, and youth to thrive and succeed in life.

UC Davis Office of Campus Community Relations (OCCR)—is to ensure the attention to those components of the campus community that affect community, campus climate, diversity and inclusiveness.  OCCR provides leadership in diversity education training, affirmative action, equity initiatives and campus community relations. OCCR serves the campus and general community by working in collaboration with a broad, diverse cross section of the campus community to develop a strategic plan to guide the university in the development and assessment of policy, programs, initiatives and outreach efforts to increase diversity, improve campus climate and promote inclusiveness.
