What is YaleWomen?
YaleWomen is a Shared Identity Group (SIG) that operates under the auspices of the Association of Yale Alumni (AYA) and Yale University. It was launched following AYA’s 2010 conference, Celebrating Yale Women: 40 Years in Yale College, 140 Years at Yale. The mission of YaleWomen, set forth in the strategic plan, 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’s core values, also set forth in the strategic plan, are: Inclusiveness; Compassion; Learning; Equality; Integrity; and Excellence. YaleWomen’s vision, which emerged from YaleWomen’s inaugural conference in 2013, Vision, Values, Voice: Women Changing a Changing World is: “Connecting Women, Igniting Ideas, Transforming the World.” YaleWomen has grown to include nearly 20 chapters in the US and around the world. In 2014, YaleWomen hosted Gender Rules: Conversations About Access, Outcome, and Equality. In May 2016, we hosted the Inaugual YaleWomen Award for Excellence honoring Linda Koch Lorimer '77 JD.
