WLI Executive Board

2023-24

Our Executive Board directs our mission of empowering and creating opportunities for women on campus by launching organization-wide events.

 

The Presidents oversee the high-level strategy and direction of the organization, spur cross-departmental initiatives across WLI's nine committees, and drive the creation of new programs and the refinement of existing ones. 

 

Our senior advisor oversees the advisory council, which launches independent initiatives aimed at increasing our engagement and collaboration with diverse communities across Yale and New Haven. 

The members of Executive Board lead one of several different committees, each integral for our internal operations, events, and engagement with the community at Yale and beyond.
