An initiative connecting Harvard University alumni with organizations leading the way globally for women's empowerment
Launched in 2021, Harvard GlobalWE Connect is an initiative that connects Harvard University alumni with organizations leading the way globally for women’s empowerment in the arts, social services, education, health, economic development, entrepreneurship, policy, STEM, and other fields. Connect’s programs include the annual Women’s Empowerment Expo and the Fireside Chat Series.
Women's Empowerment Expo
The annual Women’s Empowerment Expo enables organizations serving women and girls worldwide to engage with Harvard University alumni, students, affiliates, and friends who seek internship, volunteer, mentorship, career exploration, and charitable giving opportunities.
25+ Participating organizations in the 2021 Women’s Empowerment Expo
5 Continents where women and girls are served by these organizations
Please visit the 2021 Women's Empowerment Expo event page for more information about the 2021 event.

Women's Empowerment Fireside Chat Series

Our inaugural Fireside Chat featured leaders from the international development organization BRAC and its North American affiliate BRAC USA.
GlobalWE highly encourages our members to do their own reasearch before getting involved in any organization unaffiliated with Harvard. Harvard GlobalWE does not advocate a specific ideology or agenda; the views expressed and actions taken by the organizations listed on this page are independent of Harvard University and Harvard GlobalWE.
