Regardless of the event, Lady Gaga knows how to draw a crowd. The launch of the singer’s non-profit organization, the Born this Way Foundation (BTWF), looks to be no different.

People worldwide will be able to watch the foundation’s launch, which will be streamed live to the BTWF website on February 29th, 2012 from 4:00-5:30pm EST. A bevy of celebrities are scheduled to attend, including Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra, David Burtka, and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius. They will be joined by non-profit organizations, foundation leaders, policy makers, and students and youth at the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Askwith Forum.

In 2011, Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, founded the Born this Way Foundation. Named for her chart-topping anthem of self-acceptance, the Born this Way Foundation endeavors through digital mobilization to create a new culture of acceptance, empowerment, bravery, and kindness where difference is affirmed and individuality is celebrated.

Partnering with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The California Endowment, and the Berkman Center at Harvard, BTWF will address issues such as anti-bullying, well-being, self-confidence, mentoring, and career development.

Will you tune in?
