Do you know about the Alumnae Association’s Shared Identity Groups, aka SIGs? Founded and led by alumnae volunteers, these groups have been offering engagement opportunities for over a decade, with the newest group, Wellesley Muslim Alums, forming in 2021.
You might be hearing from leaders from one or more of these groups soon, as the WCAA has worked closely with SIG leaders and campus partners to connect alums with SIGs that align with their identities.
The six current SIGs—Wellesley Alum Pride Alliance (WAPA), Wellesley Alumnae of African Descent (WAAD), Wellesley Asian Alumnae Alliance (W3A), Wellesley Jewish Alumnae (WJA), Wellesley Latina Alumnae Network (WLAN), and Wellesley Muslim Alums (WMA)—allow alums to connect based on their inherent and intrinsic identities. These groups host a range of activities for alums, including book discussions, in-person events, and meetups during reunion.
You may opt in or out of a SIG at any time. To do so, visit alum.wellesley.edu/manage-notifications. Once you log in, you can see your current group memberships by clicking “My Class, Clubs, and SIGs” in the right-hand corner and make edits to your memberships on the same page.
