Each alumni association launched their guide as a way to highlight members of their respective communities in the face of the pandemic.

“The pandemic has disproportionately impacted women. So, we wanted to showcase these resilient women and their companies,” says Caroline Dahllöf WG09, WAFFA co-president, of her idea to open the association’s shop.

“In the past 21 months of the pandemic, there’s been this shift, with many people really thinking more deeply about what’s important and how to shop in ways that speak to what they value,” says Simone Thomas WG18, who led the launch of the Wharton Black MBA Alumni Association’s guide. “We wanted to take an opportunity this holiday season to highlight some of these incredible entrepreneurs in our own community.”
