  1. Create space where intersecting identities and scientific research coexist.
  2. Equip womxn with the tools needed to navigate educational and occupational environments.
  3. Impart skills & knowledge to promote professional development and boost participants’ preparation to enter the job market.
  4. Encourage networking that can facilitate community mentorship & sponsorship.
