YaleWomen was formed following the 2010 "Celebrating Yale Women: 40 Years in Yale College, 140 Years at Yale" event held on the Yale campus. YaleWomen is a shared interest group for all Yale women alums that operates under the auspices of the Association of Yale Alumni (AYA). We consider all Yale women alums to be members of YaleWomen, and welcome the participation of alums who want to get involved.

Our mission 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.

The Yale Women Faculty Forum (WFF) was established in 2001 during Yale’s Tercentennial year to highlight the presence of women at the University and the accomplishments of Yale alumnae. In the years since its inception, and with the support of the President and Provost of Yale, the WFF has evolved into an organization of women faculty, staff, and students who work together to:

  • Foster gender equity throughout the University through policy initiatives and research
  • Promote scholarship by women and on women and gender across all schools of the University
  • Promote mentoring, collaboration, and networking
