Harvard GlobalWE Annual Student/Alumni Roundtable



We are thrilled to announce the upcoming Annual Roundtable hosted by the Harvard Alumni for Global Women's Empowerment (GlobalWE). Over the years, this event has blossomed into a remarkable platform, gathering voices from around the world to foster crucial conversations on topics that deeply impact women. Our previous sessions, conducted  in person and virtually, provided insights into various topics ranging from Fashion to Entrepreneurship and the profound implications of the Covid pandemic on Women.


This year, we're diving into the compelling theme of "Women's Leadership in Politics and Governance." The Roundtable will explore the myriad challenges and opportunities women face as they stride towards leadership roles in political and governance arenas. Our commitment has always been to ensure that these conversations are enriched with diverse and

exceptional perspectives.


We are ecstatic to share that this year's Roundtable will convene on the prestigious Harvard Campus in Cambridge on October 28th, 2023. This gathering promises to be a memorable one, as always, bringing together our esteemed alumni, students, and globally recognized voices in the sphere of women's leadership.


Harvard GlobalWE remains steadfast in its mission: advancing the empowerment of women worldwide through education, dialogues, and networking opportunities. As part of the greater Harvard Alumni Association, we are resolute in promoting collaboration among those dedicated to championing women's rights and freedoms globally.


Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more updates on our distinguished panel and event details. Your continued support and engagement empower our shared vision for a world where women lead, inspire, and thrive.

We will be updating the page with speakers' information as well as registration details shortly. Please check back.
