Black Women's Alliance (BWA) members from MIT Classes 2019-2022 came together in October of 2018 at MIT’s Endicott House for BWA's annual retreat. Themed "Self-Love and Sustainability," the retreat allowed for upperclasswomen "to welcome the incoming freshman of the class of 2022 into the sista-hood" through group discussions on what sustainability and self love mean to Black women MIT students, alumni, and faculty.
