alumnae 2012

The Alumnae Group's second annual reception, 'Exe-X: Women Inspiring the World', was held at the Willis Building in London

The Alumnae Group

All Exeter alumnae (female graduates) are invited to be a part of the Alumnae Group. The purpose of the group is to provide guidance on activities to involve alumnae in the life of the University, and run activities to encourage alumnae to support each other in personal and professional development, and in tackling specific challenges facing women in the workplace.

The group was established following the successful launch event – the Women & Leadership Reception – held in November 2011.

The initial goals of the group are to:

  • encourage a lifelong relationship between alumnae and the University
  • create opportunities for increasing alumnae involvement with the University
  • support alumnae in professional development and networking

The group is made up of key alumnae volunteers and supported by the Development and Alumni Relations Office within the University. Join the Alumnae Group LinkedIn group to keep updated on the events and materials available to you.
