Harvardwood was created in 1999 by three Harvardians: producer Stacy Cohen, film/TV executive Adam Fratto, and then-student Mia Riverton. Harvardwood coordinates career-enhancing and community-building programs and events for its members around the world, including on- and off-campus activities for students. Additionally, Harvardwood has an active online community, including a website, alumni directory and various email lists through which our 10,000+ members worldwide can send and receive information regarding career-related issues, job opportunities, cultural & social events, classified ads, and other areas of interest.
Harvardwood has Chapters in Boston, Chicago, Georgia, London, Los Angeles, New Jersey, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, and Washington, D.C., and there are members throughout other parts of North America as well as Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia. Our membership includes alums from the class of 1955 as well as current first-year students. Members work in or study fields ranging from film and television to theatre, music, radio, sports, broadcast news, internet, design, visual arts, and entertainment law.
In 2002, Harvardwood incorporated as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. Harvardwood is not financially supported by Harvard University or related entities.
