Strategic Planning - Community Discussions

Dear Yale Women

It has been 10 years since the formation of YaleWomen. It has been an incredible decade of connecting women alums, sharing in conversation and celebrating women who have made a positive impact. Our last strategic plan was instrumental in guiding YaleWomen’s efforts and growth and was based on the input, feedback, and aspirations of a wide breadth of community members. 

We have launched a strategic planning process this fall that will allow us to build upon the existing strengths of our historic institution and make it an even more extraordinary platform to create positive change in ourselves, our communities, and the world.

Our strategic planning committee includes women across different generations, schools, backgrounds, and geographic locations. We will be reaching out to the wider community through a variety of meetings and interviews. 

The first of these opportunities is a community brainstorming session. We will engage you through some exercises to get your reflections on YaleWomen and your ideas for how we might move forward as a community. Three sessions will be offered to encourage as many community members as possible to participate in the process. We invite you to attend one of the following community brainstorming sessions

  • Thursday, December 3rd, 12 pm EST / 9 am PST - Register here
  • Thursday, December 10th, 6 pm EST / 3 pm PST - Register here.
If you are unable to attend the sessions, we would love to hear your thoughts through this short survey

We would like to hear from women alums who are very involved and also those with a healthy skepticism or feedback. This is your opportunity to speak up and help us figure out how we can use our incredible platform and resources to create programming and initiatives that can uniquely make a positive impact. 

Thank you for joining us in conversation - we are excited to hear from you! 

With gratitude, 

YaleWomen Strategic Planning Committee
