WomenExplore Lecture and Discussion Forum Overview
Target demographics: WomenExplore is an open learning community of thoughtful women, who, each year, organize two series of lectures in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts. The topics examined in the series arise from the issues that the participants encounter in their lives. Each week the day begins with a short lecture from one of participants on how the day's issue relates to her personal life. This is followed by an expert speaker and then discussion by members of the audience. WE began in the Harvard Divinity School as the Theological Opportunities Program. WomenExplore has no religious or other affiliations.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 150-200

Programs: a "share and care" community support group. World-class speakers discuss important personal, professional, societal, and global issues. Participants also plan the lecture series from topics that arise from their own interests and/or daily lives.
