Calling all Toronto-based Harvard alumni! 

On Thursday, September 29, alumni in cities around the world will come together to welcome members of the Class of 2022 to their new cities! Harvard alumni who graduated between 2012 and 2022, from the College or any of the graduate schools, are invited to participate.

If you live in Toronto or have plans to move there, the Harvard Club of Toronto welcomes you to register here for their Welcome to Your City event. The evening promises a welcome to Toronto while meeting and connecting with alumni in the area. Attendees will also learn about the many Harvard Clubs and Shared Interest Groups available to you and more. There will be a cash bar at this event.

Whether you are new to Toronto or have called it home for years, the Harvard community is your community—so we hope you will join us on September 29! Register with your LinkedIn profile or other social media accounts to see who's coming and connect with others before, during, and after the event.

Andrea Poile
’14
Harvard Graduate School of Education
After spending a decade in the education, nonprofit, and mindfulness/contemplative spheres, I got a crash course in all the ways idealistic entrepreneurs can drive their projects into the ground when they lack the managerial acumen to run an organization. I saw too many well-intentioned folks (myself included) cause too much undue suffering for themselves and others. Good intentions don’t cut it when people’s livelihoods are at stake. My goal is to be a "tri-sector" leader capable of co-creating systems and solutions across the public, private, and social divides. I'm passionate about organizational and instructional design, as well as solving those messy, oft-overlooked problems that will lead to a kinder, more sustainable world.
