Kathryn Hanson, CEO of ALearn, was one of 114 Harvard Business School (HBS) graduates selected by the school’s alumni to be honored as it celebrates “50 years of Women at HBS." The HBS Alumni Association of Northern California held a gala on Monday, January 27, 2014 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in San Francisco to honor the alumnae leaders. The honorees have made an impact through their leadership roles in both for-profit and non-profit organizations, while also volunteering time to give back to the broader community. The honorees were nominated and chosen from more than 1,200 female graduates of Harvard Business School who reside and work in Northern California. They span six decades of Harvard graduates, and many are contributing to an endowed fellowship to benefit future young women admitted to HBS from the Bay Area.
