For over a decade the National Faculty Women of Color in the Academy Conference (FWCA) has been the leading professional development experience for women of color in higher education. Each year hundreds of women from across the country attend FWCA to engage with and learn from other women in the Women of Color Scholar network. Support from sponsors like you allows us to continue to increase access by keeping registration prices below 40% of the actual cost per attendee. It is because of your generosity that we are able to deliver high quality programming at no additional cost to attendees and participants.

Vendors


Vendors get three-day access to over 500 women of color leaders and educators! As an FWCA vendor you have an opportunity to showcase, give away, or sell your products and services in-person as well as on our digital platform. As space is limited, we are prioritizing SWaM (small, women, and minority owned business) vendors whose products and services prioritize the needs and interests of women of color, or those whose products are regionally based in the DMV area and cannot be accessed elsewhere.

The FWCA Vendors' Hall will be located at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA and will be open April 11, 2024 - April 14, 2024. Registration is due by March 20, 2024 or until spaces are filled. If you need assistance with registration please contact Jeneen Preston at pjeneen7@vt.edu.
