Together, we are changing the world.

Our mission is sustained through the numerous individuals, foundations and corporations who invest in the Women and Public Policy Program.

Foundational support

The resources provided by the Women’s Leadership Board, the Abigail E. Disney Endowment Fund, and the William and Lia G. Poorvu Family Foundation impact every facet of our work toward global gender equality. This foundational support advances cutting-edge research and policy innovations, as well as our future leaders who are trained and enriched by WAPPP.

Programmatic and research support

From Harvard Square to the Oval Office is made possible through the generous support of the Barbara Lee Women and U.S. Politics Training Program and Lecture Series Endowment Fund, Joanne Egerman, and the Beatrice Koretsky Bleicher Memorial Endowment Fund.

Investment in our students through internship funding and support is provided by the Adrienne Hall Women's Mentorship Endowment Fund, the Germeshausen Foundation, Joanne Egerman, and the Women’s Leadership Board.

The Closing the Global Gender Gap: A Call to Action, an initiative led by the Women and Public Policy Program in collaboration with the Center for International Development at Harvard University, is made possible through the support of ExxonMobil’s Women’s Economic Opportunity Initiative.
