GlobalWE Connect

An initiative connecting Harvard University alumni with organizations leading the way globally for women's empowerment

GlobalWE Connect is a new 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. GlobalWE Connect provides a forum for discussion with these organizations and hosts a Women’s Empowerment Expo, which enables these organizations to engage with Harvard University alumni and students as well as professors, staff, and other members of the Harvard University community who seek internship, volunteer, mentorship, career exploration, and charitable giving opportunities.

2021 Women's Empowerment Expo

The 2021 Women’s Empowerment Expo will be held in a virtual format over the course of two Saturdays in April on the topics of health (April 17th) and education (April 24th).

Please visit the 2021 Women's Empowerment Expo event page for more information about this exciting event.

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.
