Cohort Sistas is a digital non-profit that supports Black women and non-binary people pursuing research doctorates by providing resources, mentorship, and community to improve educational, professional, financial, and mental health outcomes. We believe that Black women and non-binary people should be able to enter, thrive in, and complete doctoral programs with the same institutional, financial, and socio-emotional support, mentorship, and opportunities as other students, so we work to increase the number of Black womxn who matriculate into and complete doctoral degrees, reduce the undue financial and emotional burden of doctoral education for Black womxn, and strengthen the pipeline of Black womxn faculty and leaders in higher education and industry.
