Partner Elizabeth Gray was recently invited to join Harvard Kennedy School’s Women’s Leadership Board (WLB). She serves as one of few lawyers on the board.
Consisting of leaders from the most senior levels of government, business, academia and the non-profit sector, members of the WLB serve as key supporters and ambassadors to Women and Public Policy Program (WAPPP), a research center of Harvard Kennedy School that specializes in gender research, teaching, training and outreach. WAPPP and the WLB aim to create gender equality and improve the lives of women and men around the world, focusing on rigorous, high-impact research that furthers a shared mission of closing gender gaps in the areas of economic opportunity, political participation, health and education.
The Women’s Leadership Board members are nominated by existing WLB members or Harvard Kennedy School officials, and evaluated by the WLB executive committee and Harvard University. Individual members are invited based on demonstrated leadership and professional accomplishments. All members possess a shared dedication to philanthropically supporting the mission, growth and impact of the WAPPP.
