Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, announced that  Oprah Winfrey will be joining them at Harvard University for the  official launch of the Born This Way Foundation (BTWF) on Wednesday, February 29th, 2012. Oprah will appear alongside Lady Gaga as she formally unveils BTWF before a crowd of policymakers,  nonprofit organizations, foundation leaders, students, and youth at the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Askwith Forum.

Lady Gaga also will be joined by several renowned guests including  prolific author and speaker Deepak Chopra, U.S. Secretary of Health and  Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, and Charles Ogletree, Harvard Law  School’s Jesse Climenko Professor of Law and Director of the Charles  Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice.

BTWF, a nonprofit  charitable organization, will address issues like self-confidence,  well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development through  research, education and advocacy. With a focus on digital mobilization  to create positive change, BTWF will lead youth into a braver new  society where each individual is accepted and loved as the person they  were born to be.
