About The Harvard-Oxford (and friends!) Alumni Social Business Group

In May 2013, over 100 alumni from Harvard, Oxford and friends came together to exchange ideas as to how we can use the business world as a force for positive social change.  An exciting community was born.

We welcome everyone and extend far beyond Harvard-Oxford alumni.  We meet every May and November to listen to the personal journeys of individuals driven by passion, purpose and fearlessness.  We exchange insights to help each other overcome the challenges of driving forward socially responsible initiatives in the business world.

We also have a great time!
