The HarvEst Distinguished Women Lecture Series features women from a broad range of disciplines and cultures. It offers a forum to foster thoughtful dialogue and an opportunity to be inspired by outstanding and accomplished real-world women leaders. The theme for each lecture varies from year to year. The lectureship realizes the entrepreneurial vision of University of California, Berkeley alumni, Esther Ma, '87, and her husband, Harvey Lee, '88, of Hong Kong. In 2013, they graciously provided support for the HarvEst lectureship.
