Harvard GlobalWE is a shared interest group of the Harvard Alumni Association. We are dedicated to the empowerment of women through education, dialogue and connection among individuals working for women's rights and freedoms worldwide.
Harvard GlobalWE members span the globe, hailing from the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, England, Canada, the USA, and beyond. The diversity of our backgrounds, genders, religions, politics, perspectives and cultures fuels our conversations and understandings. Our commonality is our unwavering dedication to global women's empowerment: a shared commitment that has drawn us together, and continues to attract Harvard alumni from around the world as well as Harvard students, staff, and affiliates.
Harvard GlobalWE does not advocate a specific ideology or agenda; rather, we highlight and raise awareness about issues concerning women's empowerment worldwide, including but not limited to: education, political rights, freedom from violence, economic empowerment, and women's healthcare. Our efforts include worldwide online screenings and discussions of documentaries and films, in-person roundtable discussions with women leaders, and the development of a network of organizations through which our membership can become more actively involved in specific global women's empowerment initiatives.
