About the Joint Alumni Forum
A “Social Responsibility Committee” was recently established by the Harvard Club of Switzerland comprising representatives of the Alumni Clubs of Harvard, Oxford & Cambridge, Stanford, and Yale in Switzerland have designed a forum for discussion, education and debate on various themes encompassing social responsibility, featuring an after-work speakers and networking series. The themes for the series could encompass equality issues (gender, race, minorities), human rights, refugees and environment /sustainability. The outreach for the speakers series is broader than exclusively the alumni of universities in the collaboration, but also like-minded representatives of institutions based in Switzerland and members of the public. There are also other collaborations evolving, i.e. student and refugee mentoring programs. If you would like to participate in various projects emcompassing social responsibility (i.e. sustainability, etc.) you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
