India

HARVARD ALUMNI FOR EDUCATION (H.A.Ed.)  is launching its India Chapter!

India represents one of the most challenging contexts for educational reforms and it benefits from a large and rapidly growing ecosystem of educational innovations. Today, many Harvard alumni across India are engaged in leading innovations, shaping public policy, and creating educational change. However, there is no single platform to bring their voices together and amplify their collective impact. H.A.Ed will change that.

H.A.Ed seeks to build a vibrant and pragmatic platform that brings together all Harvard alumni engaged in education in India to connect with each other and create impact in the following ways:

  1. Knowledge & Networking Events -  Create a forum to share provocative ideas in education through thought leadership panels & professional networking events in major Indian cities.

  2. Media & Policy Advocacy - Influence Indian media and policymakers to highlight educational issues by disseminating innovations, publicizing research evidence, and creating a space for dialogue.

  3. Peer-to-Peer and Organizational Relationships - Provide opportunities for members and organizations to access mentors, collaborators, talent and funders in the H.A.Ed India eco-system.
