The BA Women’s Alliance is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization which supports the educational, personal, and professional development of women who seek to make a difference in the world.

We champion women whose values align with those for whom this organization honors: B.A. Rudolph. These are women who embody B.A.’s fierce dedication to justice and radiate B.A.’s devotion to advancing and empowering women. There are thousands of B.A.s—BA Women—among us. It is our mission to find and champion them.

The BA Women's Alliance is closely monitoring the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak. For more information about BA Women's response to COVID-19 read the full press release



Last summer, the BA Women’s Alliance hosted 38 women through our 2019 EmpowHER program: an application-based, 8-week intensive summer program in Washington, D.C. designed for collegiate women who seek to make a difference in the world. Our nation's capital is brimming with opportunities to learn and grow, exploring and witnessing history in a city with some of the world’s most influential women.


While each of us has fought hard to open doors, we’ve also had doors held open by generous advocates. Think back to your first big break. Who helped pave your way? Today, you can help pave the way for women to shatter glass ceilings and expectations.



The BA Women’s Alliance is more than a nonprofit; we’re a family. We know that our supporters and alumnae have personal stakes in advocating for the advancement of women everywhere, and it is through this commitment that the BA Legacy is strengthened.

The Alliance wouldn’t exist without you.

Whether you’re interested in making a financial contribution, or in contributing your time and energy, we have a way for you to get involved!
