About the Alumnae Network of Harvard Women Switzerland

In 2013, a group of Radcliffe and Harvard alumnae founded the Alumnae-i Network for Harvard Women (ANHW) with the intent of connecting students, alumnae, faculty and administrators from all Harvard schools. Our immediate goal is to provide opportunities for networking and a platform from which to address issues of particular concern to women in the Harvard community and beyond. New Chapters and Discussion Groups are growing in number monthly, and events are hosting all over the world, as the ANHW website shows. The Swiss ANHW DSG, ANHW CH, has been open in 2020, with activities announced here.
