Chair's Letter

“This is why we do what we do.”

This year, when alums have told us that engaging with YaleWomen has influenced their lives – from deciding to run for elected office, to negotiating salary, to identifying and taking next steps after watching our “Gendered Language and Blocking Bias in the Workplace” webinar (see story below) – we’ve frequently found ourselves saying “this is why we do what we do.”

We also found ourselves focused on the word why in conjunction with the YaleWomen Council’s in-person meeting last month, as we began our work to chart a course for the 2018-2019 year and beyond. You might be interested in exploring the tool we used to help us get to YaleWomen’s why – our purpose and beliefs – which will guide us as we develop this year’s workplan. (Spoiler alert for those of you who tinker with the tool: our why will take us to our how and our what!) Stay tuned for more information!

Please join YaleWomen in celebrating and telling the stories of Yale women. Let us hear from you, in our Facebook group or by email to [email protected]. Our thanks for all you do!
