Los Angeles: Pop sensation Lady Gaga is all set to unveil her Born This Way foundation at the Harvard University alongwith TV mogul Oprah Winfrey.



The foundation is being launched on February 29 to tackle the issues that Gaga addresses in the song's lyrics: "self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and
career development through research, education and advocacy."



The event is scheduled for a feature on Winfrey's show 'Oprah's Next Chapter' on her OWN Tv network, reported Billboard.

Other attendees and speakers at the event include Deepak Chopra and the US Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius.



The Born This Way Foundation is a joint effort between  the John D & Catherine T MacArthur Foundation, The California Endowment and The Berkman Center at Harvard, with an aim to fostering "a new culture of kindness, bravery, acceptance and empowerment."
