SAIS Women's Alumni Network

The Johns Hopkins SAIS Women's Alumni Network (SWAN) was launched in 2014 to position SAIS alumnae as leaders in international relations and related fields. The alumni group quickly expanded with the launch of leadership hubs in Washington D.C., New York, London and Brussels to bridge a global community of active and engaged SAIS alumni. Throughout the year, SWAN hosts a diverse line-up of programming in professional and career development, roundtable discussions, film forums, mentorship and networking opportunities. It also has a dynamic online community via LinkedIn and Facebook.


SWAN is a key pillar of the broader SAIS Women Lead (SWL) initiative. SWL brings together alumni, students, faculty, policymakers and market experts to promote women in leadership. It is a program of action: to educate and train leaders, assess impact, leverage SAIS technical expertise, drive discussion and build community. In addition to alumni engagement via SWAN, SWL includes the Global Women in Leadership student organization, the Women Who Inspire lecture series and the recently launched academic curriculum, SAIS Global Women’s Leadership Development Program.


If you would like to get more involved with SWAN, we would love to hear from you!
