about-the-ba-womans-allianceThe BA Women’s Alliance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that champions women who seek to make a difference in the world. We know that a small amount of support can make all the difference in someone’s life; so we aim to enrich the lives of women, so that they, in turn, can make all the difference in the world.

We founded the BA Women’s Alliance to honor B.A. Rudolph, a remarkable woman who set her goddaughters with the task of helping other women, and whose ideals we emulate.


As a progressive organization, we emphasize freedom of choice, opportunity for all, mutual respect, and cooperation among all in a complex world that requires multifaceted solutions.


Our values include:

  • Equity. We are anti-racist justice-oriented feminists.
  • Authenticity. We are clear in our goals and unapologetic in our work.
  • Tenacity. We are determined and persistent. We stand up. We speak out.
  • Compassion: We are kind to others and ourselves.
  • Advancement. We are curious and constantly growing.
  • Community. We pay it forward. We lift as we climb.

What We Do & How We Do It

B.A. taught us that a small amount of support can make a significant difference, especially to women at the start—or restart—of their careers. We are building a community of strong, confident, equipped women who are changing the world. We provide professional, personal, and educational advancement opportunities, thereby creating a fiercely dedicated community that champions women across the country and around the world.

I stand up and I speak out.
I am unapologetic in my work.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We are committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. This includes supporting women who are immigrants (including undocumented individuals and Dreamers), first-generation college students, LGBTQI individuals, non-binary individuals, people of color, and people with disabilities through our programs and scholarships.
We support individuals and organizations who share these same values
