Inspire – Women of Dartmouth Stories

Join Our Team

We are continuously producing a body of ideas and content for INSPIRE. Our philosophy when it comes to volunteer engagement is to divide and conquer, while having alumnae participate in roles that match their capabilities and interests. Any interest from an alumna – no matter how small – is welcome and we will find a way to add your talents to this initiative.

If you’re looking to make lasting connections with Dartmouth alumnae and have a can-do volunteer spirit, contact us.

General Inquiries: We are always looking for fresh energy to support inbound and outbound communications, the storyteller experience, production and editorial. If you have professional skills unique to this project or are curious as to how you can best contribute, please contact us.
