Connecting Women, Igniting Ideas, Transforming the World.
Our mission is to create a vibrant, engaged community of alums, drawn together by the common thread of our Yale experiences, that is committed to advancing women's voices and perspectives and to enriching and inspiring one another, Yale, and the world.
YaleWomen was formed following the 2010 "Celebrating Yale Women: 40 Years in Yale College, 140 Years at Yale" event held on the Yale campus. YaleWomen is a shared interest group for all Yale women alums that operates under the auspices of the Association of Yale Alumni (AYA). We consider all Yale women alums to be members of YaleWomen, and welcome the participation of alums who want to get involved.
Together, YaleWomen can change the world.
