New thread. Same fabric. Lincoln Connect is Lincoln School’s digital home for alumnae to come together and connect over everything from career transitions or travel plans, to significant life changes and everyday moments with the level of trust and camaraderie that is woven throughout the Lincoln experience.
Seek out friends and classmates; reminisce, learn about what they’ve been up to, discuss how things have changed—and, yet have remained the same.
Share your personal connections, wisdom, and experience; make an introduction, serve as a mentor to those who may be walking a similar path, or just starting their journey, or find the perfect new hire.
Going on a trip? Changing jobs? Experiencing a major life event? Leverage Lincoln’s amazing network of women to expand your resources, seek guidance and share your expertise.
Utilize Lincoln Connect to enhance your personal and professional development by connecting with women in different stages of their lives and careers. You never know what inside connections you’ll find valuable until you begin a conversation.
You can log on to Lincoln Connect with your LinkedIn account, (the method we recommend) Facebook account, or email. Regardless of which option you choose, you can always sync information from your social media accounts under the "You" tab in the "Update Your Profile Section".
We suggest using LinkedIn to connect with fellow alumnae in a professional setting, and for your most up to date information to be displayed on your profile.
The platform is a closed network only accessible by individuals approved by Lincoln School. You can control the amount of information that others on the site can see about you through your profile settings.
Lincoln Connect feeds information in from your LinkedIn or Facebook profile if you sync your account, but it does not feed information back out to those social media platforms. If you post something on Lincoln Connect, it remains within Lincoln Connect.
Please be aware that any information that you share will be viewable by everyone on Lincoln Connect and the Lincoln School Advancement Office does not have direct control over how another member may use the information. If you have any concerns about your or your family’s safety, we recommend you remove personal identifiable information. You may also opt to delete your profile at any time.
No. Lincoln Connect does not replace our social media channels. Lincoln Connect is about creating a space for alumnae to interact, participate, and inspire each other through mentoring and sharing of experience. It’s different from social media because it enables you to find and connect with the huge Lincoln alumnae network in a really easy way.
All names and graduation years of alumnae have been uploaded into Lincoln Connect as a directory, so you are able to search your graduation year and see a full class list. If Lincoln School has an email on file for an alumna, but she has not yet logged into the system and created a profile, you will have the opportunity to message that alumna through Lincoln Connect - her email will not be displayed for you to see.
1. Register by creating your own username and password. We suggest registering through LinkedIn - it is the quickest and easiest way.
2. Follow the instructions step by step to add all of the relevant information to your profile.
3. Your membership will be activated automatically, unless your contact information does not match Lincoln School's system. In this case, you will be approved by a member of the Advancement Team.
4. Post a message to say hello and introduce yourself, upload photos, browse to find people you know or job and internship opportunities, and invite other alumnae to join.

If you’ve forgotten your password, use the ‘forgotten your password’ link to reset a new password. If you are sure you have the right username and password, then it might be that you’ve changed the email address the system is linked to. If you change your email address in your profile, it might affect your log in details. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
