Howard University partnered with The Estée Lauder Companies to create a safe space for Howard alumnae to build community and receive programming tailored to their needs.

She’s Howard: Own Your Power creates opportunities for Howard women to keep receiving unique and distinct offerings of the Howard experience even after graduating.

“She’s Howard: Own Your Power is our opportunity to double down on the support network that comes with being a Howard alum by strategically targeting our women graduates with opportunities that will help them advance both personally and professionally,” said Sharon Strange Lewis, director of alumni relations at Howard University.

She’s Howard: Own Your Power is a part of the company’s ongoing commitment to double recruitment of employees and interns from HBCUs, establish stronger partnerships with Black organizations, and meaningfully support external organizations and nonprofits pushing for systemic changes and racial and social justice.

She’s Howard: Own Your Power programming will include virtual networking events, a lecture series and seminars on relevant industry topics. Discussions will focus on topics that support the personal and professional needs of Howard alumnae, including strategies for balancing personal and professional responsibilities, navigating the challenges Black women face in the workplace, and more.
