My Sister's Keeper is an intentional program focused on building community among women of color at Tulane University. In collaboration with Newcomb Institute, Student Conduct, The Office for Gender & Sexual Diversity, and The Well for Health Promotion, we have designed a cohort experience with committed staff and faculty to offer support throughout the program. This program is open to undergraduate and graduate/professional students currently enrolled at Tulane University.

This small cohort experience consists of the following:

  • A regularly scheduled monthly┬ámeetup
  • Faculty and staff mentorship from departments mentioned above and others
  • An off campus retreat in the spring semester

Issues discussed throughout the program will include strategies for the following:

  • Self-Empowerment
  • Networking within communities of color
  • Addressing the barriers to success for women of color in higher education
  • Sexuality within communities of color
  • Building healthy relationships
  • Healing after emotional and physical trauma

Applications are open for the 2021-2022 cohort For more information please contact Sienna Abdulahad, Director for the Office of Multicultural Affairs at
