      Smith alumnae are leaders and trailblazers. The Office of Alumnae Relations supports Smith College graduates with quality career management resources at every step of their ascent. Just starting out? Redefining your career? Looking for the next step? No matter what stage your career is in, we’re here to help you thrive and reach your goals. And no matter where your career takes you, the Smith College alumnae network is your most powerful resource. Stay connected through the Alumnae Directory, clubs and groups, your class and through the college's social media outlets.

      Smith women are a powerful force in business. They lead some of the most influential companies in the world, start businesses that shake up the status quo, advise governments around the globe and change industries by advocating for fairness and equality. The Smith College Business Network provides tangible support among a group of the world’s most accomplished female leaders.

      The world needs more women leaders. Smith women in business are making an impressive impact, yet the landscape still looks decisively male. With the Smith College Business Network, we aim to shift the tide, ensuring that more women—Smith women—have a voice at the decision-making table and make their way to the top of industries and corporations.

      Smith College is committed to women leaders.?We’re nurturing the next generation of game changers just as we’re supporting our alumnae who are working in the trenches, leading companies and tipping the demographics.?Smith is an incubator of big ideas and a launching pad for bold and ambitious women. At Smith, we teach women to make their world.
