From Humble Beginnings, Women of Color at Penn Marks 30th Anniversary
April 11, 2017
It started with lunch. On a spring day in 1988, a small group of women of color on faculty and staff at the University of Pennsylvania met for lunch at the Penn Tower Hotel. They were hosted by Marcia Rafig, the hotel’s general manager, one of the few women of color in high level hotel management positions in the country. It was the first-ever Women of Color Day.
