The Society of Alumni constitution affirms that we serve “the global community, through an expanding and diverse body of men and women who share the common bond of a Williams education.” In keeping with that mission, the Alumni Relations Office supports the development and continued growth of Alumni Networks which represent under-represented constituents of the Society of Alumni.
Our Alumni Networks, much like our Classes and our Regional Associations, function as sub-groups of the Society with the particular intent of advocating for and representing emerging and under-represented populations within the Society.The current Alumni Networks within the Society of Alumni include: Women of Williams, Williams College Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Alumni Network (BiGLATA), Williams Black Alumni Network (WBAN), Williams Latina/o Alumni Network (WLAN), Williams Asian and Asian-American Network (WAAAN), Williams First, and International Ephs. For more information about these networks, click here.
If you would like be identified as a member of any of these groups and join the mailing lists please send an email to email@example.com including your name and the name of the Network which you would like to join.
Each network offers opportunities to serve as a member of the executive leadership, as a member of a ad-hoc committee that may develop to address a specific initiative or plan a major network event, or you can offer to plan and/host a network event in your local area in conjunction with Regional Association leadership. Volunteers in all roles are particularly being sought by the Women of Williams, Williams First, and International Ephs networks.
The Alumni Relations Office offers twice-yearly online training for persons interested in becoming Network Volunteers and every other summer the office hosts a leadership/planning retreat on campus for the networks. If you are interested in volunteering with one or more of the existing networks or if you would like to talk to the Alumni Relations Office about establishing a much needed network, please contact Sharifa T. Wright ’03, Director, Alumni Diversity & Inclusion and Associate Director, Alumni Relations.
