In 2013, a group of Radcliffe and Harvard alumnae founded the Alumnae 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.

At our ANHW March 2016 event, Professor Iris Bohnet gave a presentation based on her book What Works: Gender Equality by Design.
