“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 Mission, 2011)
The YaleWomen Council is responsible for advancing this mission. Consider joining us!
Do you know a talented Yale woman alum? Nominate her – or yourself – to join the YaleWomen Council. Who would be a good nominee? YaleWomen’s bylaws contain the following guidance:
“The ideal Council member will be an engaged alum, who has demonstrated volunteer commitment to Yale or to a Yale alum organization (including YaleWomen). Nominees for the Council should be able to devote adequate time to Council activities and be willing to make Council service a priority. They should possess good judgment, listening and speaking skills, follow through on work they undertake, be able to work collaboratively, and be willing to serve as ambassadors for YaleWomen.”
We are especially excited to undertake the nomination process as we move into our seventh year: to expand our signature initiatives – enewsletters, webinars, chapters, and social media – and develop distinctive and compelling new ways for us to connect and engage with one another and to use our voices to transform the world.
