Afros & Rizos Events 2018


February 23rd, 2018

State University of New York at Old Westbury 

Hosting Organization- Women In Progress (W.I.P.) 

WIP is a women based club on the Old Westbury campus thats solely aids in the sisterhood and empowerment of women. We aim to encourage women, build their self-confidence and allow their voices to be heard.

The purpose of WIP is to show women that their voices matter, celebrate the honor and diversity in women, support women and empower them.

Hosting Organization- Hermandad De Sigma Iota Alpha, Inc.- Theta Chapter

Since 1990, Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Inc. has focused on offering women an opportunity to unite in the interest of leadership, community service, women empowerment, social/cultural awareness and sisterhood.

While shared ideas of responsibilities, interests, and feelings are common in many organizations, Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Inc. places solidarity at the forefront. While no sister is the same, each of us can relate to each other based upon a mutual respect for bettering our campuses, our communities, and ourselves.

Our strength lies not only in our desire to inspire all those around us or our tenacity to accomplish our goals, but in the friendships and the network that exist between sisters across the nation.
