Shetewy-Tech is Arab Conference at Harvard University's Technical Partner


The Harvard Arab Alumni Association (HAAA) is an organization that was established in 2001 with the aim of promoting substantive change in the Arab world and empowering Harvard Arab alumni to address key challenges facing Arab societies. The association has over 4,000 alumni and friends and supports various charities, scholarship funds, and research initiatives throughout the Arab world.

The HAAA holds two conferences annually, the Arab Conference at Harvard (ACH) and the Harvard Arab World Conference (HAWC). The ACH is held on the Harvard campus and is the largest Arab conference in North America, bringing together nearly 1,300 students and professionals to discuss important topics with prominent politicians, business people, and civil society leaders.

The HAWC is held in a different Arab city each year and brings together hundreds of youth, working professionals, Harvard alumni, faculty, and societal leaders to increase dialogue and awareness of issues facing the Arab world. The conferences provide a platform for influential figures, such as Amr Mousa of Egypt, Queen Noor of Jordan, and Tawakkol Karman of Yemen, to share their insights and engage in meaningful discussions.

The HAAA has partnered with organizations such as Saudi Aramco, Bank Audi, Startup Bahrain, and Strategy& to support initiatives that promote positive change in Arab societies. The association has even launched the first and only alumni-led scholarship fund at Harvard.

Through its conferences and partnerships, the HAAA seeks to address the historical underrepresentation of the Arab world at Harvard and promote initiatives that advance the region. Its efforts have been recognized by the Harvard President, who named it the best alumni association at Harvard.
