ANHW DC Chapter

Vision Statement

The DC chapter of ANHW aims to develop a vibrant community of the Harvard and Radcliffe  alumni/ae who live in the Washington DC metropolitan area.  We are planning programs and networking events that will enhance Harvard women’s presence and leadership within Harvard and the larger society, particularly in DC.  Programs will focus on expanding opportunities for leadership and success in both traditional and non-traditional realms, including both paid and unpaid work.
