Her Color Shines 2021

Good day!!

Oh behalf of the planning committee of Her Color Shines, we invite you to attend our in-person celebration on April 24, 2021 at 6pm. If you arrive early, photographers will be there to stamp that Red Run way pose. The run way will be from 5:30-6:00 pm. The program will begin promptly at 6 pm.

This event was created to acknowledge and award young women of color (faculty, staff, and student) at Indiana State University for their exceptional leadership, academic performance, and resilience. We celebrate the phenomenal accomplishments of our women of color. This will be your chance to let your light shine.

Even though we did not have the 4th annual event in 2020, please know that the students that applied, in 2020, were recognized and sent their HSC Award last year. However, the faculty and staff were not recognized and unable to celebrate. So, this year we will include 2020 and 2021 awardees this year.

It is our attempt to create an event that will truly be remarkable and memorable; so, we have reserved Tilson Auditorium so ensure social distancing. Measures will be taken that everyone can feel safe to attend.

As stated, the event will begin with an actual red carpet walk between 5:30-6pm. The program will begin promptly at 6pm. Our colors for the evening are black, white, and cream. If you do not have those colors, please wear whatever you have in your closet. Just remember, this is a red carpet event; so no jeans!

While this event is free and open to the public, we ask that all that if you plan on attending, please pre-register via this link https://indstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bPeLv8C7dY36tSJ

Registration will close on April 20 at 11:59pm
