Welcome to the Office for Gender Equity

The Office for Gender Equity works to advance Harvard’s commitment to providing an environment where each of us feels safe to participate fully in University life—whether studying, teaching, conducting research, or working to support our individual and collective goals.

How Can We Help You?

If you are ready to talk to us about a concern, you have the option to connect with us confidentially or anonymously, in person or in a virtual setting, to get support and learn more about your options, which may include filing a formal complaint. We encourage you to choose the pathway that feels most comfortable for you.

While much change is happening in the world around us and at Harvard, our commitment to gender equity remains steadfast. Whether you are still on campus, at home, at work, or anywhere around the world, we are here for you.
