Background and Expo Overview

Join Harvard Alumni for Global Women's Empowerment (Harvard GlobalWE) Connect for its fourth Women's Empowerment Expo and first Expo in a virtual format on April 17 and 24, 2021 featuring organizations leading the way for women's empowerment in health and education worldwide.


Harvard 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. 


The Women’s Empowerment Expo enables these organizations to engage with Harvard University alumni and students as well as professors, staff, members and Friends of GlobalWE, and other members of the Harvard University community who seek internship, volunteer, mentorship, career exploration, and charitable giving opportunities.

Each Part of the Expo will feature a panel discussion with leaders of women's empowerment organizations followed by breakout sessions in which attendees can learn about additional organizations serving women and girls around the world and how they can volunteer or get involved with these organizations.



In this year's Expo, there are over 25 particpating organizations working across five continents.

Part 1: Saturday, April 17th at 11:00 a.m. Eastern featuring health-focused organizations.

Part 2: Saturday, April 24th at 11:00 a.m. Eastern featuring education-focused organizations.
