Market research firm Mintel coined the term “eco-gender gap” in 2018, referring to the fact that, according to research, it is primarily women who carry out most of the actions to sustain our planet – both personally and professionally.

Join Hoya women working in the sustainability space to hear more about their thoughts on this gap, as well as what they are doing to help save the planet in their roles and companies at the 2024 Women's Forum: https://g.town/WF2024

In 2019, a committee of the Georgetown University African American Advisory Board, the predecessor of the Black Alumni Council, formed to launch We Are Georgetown: Celebrating our Black History, an oral history project designed to document and share the rich history and experiences of the Black community at Georgetown University. Co-chairs Michael C. Ford (L’84) and Fonda Sutton (SFS’87, L’95, G’15) lead the alumni and current student volunteers for this project.

Through storytelling and first-hand accounts, We Are Georgetown documents the history of the Black experience at Georgetown, leveraging oral histories, artifacts, and memorabilia. The project’s initial focus is on the stories of Black students, faculty, staff, alumni, and others from the 1960s to the present. This signature project of the Black Alumni Council aims to represent an intergenerational portrait of our narrative, spanning across the University’s undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools.

Today, they’ve completed 100 interviews capturing the life and experiences of Black community members.

In celebration of , we invite you to explore the project: https://g.town/493btq4

In 1983, a group of undergraduates started a medical ambulance service for fellow students on foot. Forty years later, the group has grown into one of the largest student-run ambulance services among colleges and universities in the U.S.

Georgetown EMS (GERMS) provides free, around-the-clock emergency services to the campus and surrounding Georgetown neighborhoods of Burleith and Foxhall. GERMS is run entirely by undergraduates. And this year, its members and alumni marked their 40-year anniversary as a club that’s now intergenerational.

“We have legacy members whose parents were once part of GERMS,” said Abby Hames (C’24), vice president of operations for GERMS.

The service has not only cared for the Georgetown community but cultivated its own, all the while preparing many of its members’ for future careers in health and medicine.

Georgetown’s Office of Student Equity & Inclusion (OSEI) opened a new community center on the lower level of New South that will be the campus’ central hub for diversity, equity and inclusion work.

The space will be home to the Center for Multicultural Equity and Access, the Community Scholars Program, the Disability Cultural Center, the LGBTQ Resource Center and the Women’s Center.

“This space brings a physical area for us to gather in. Now that we have this space, it’s just easier to connect with other students,” Tara Haas (H’25) said. “It means a lot to me, especially as a student with a disability … To see this space is really important to me because it shows that Georgetown is willing to do this.”

Actor Kate Ginna (C’18) co-wrote the script for a feature film called Stargazer, and is playing a lead role. She has completed another feature film script, and also co-wrote a television pilot.

With Stargazer now enjoying success on the film festival circuit, Ginna is continuing to write while pursuing acting roles. She credits Georgetown for her “multihyphenate” career. “The theater professors took you seriously; there was no condescension. My brain fundamentally changed from having them as my teachers.”

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Georgetown University honored Reginald L. Douglas (C’09), an alumnus and rising artistic leader in Washington, DC, who has worked to champion diverse voices and spur dialogue across communities through theater with the 2024 John Thompson Jr. Legacy of a Dream Award at the John F. Kennedy Center.

Douglas, artistic director of the Mosaic Theater Company of DC, received the award as part of the 20th Let Freedom Ring Celebration, an annual public event hosted by Georgetown and the Kennedy Center that honors Dr. King’s life and legacy.

“I realized I could combine my lifelong love of the arts and theater with my love for civic engagement and government and politics. The blending of those two was the great spark for me. My work as an artist could be directly tied to advocacy or to activism, and I’m so grateful because now that’s what I get to do for a life,” Douglas said.

According to a recent report by CNBC, companies with more women on their boards outperform those without by a significant margin, and organizations with greater gender diversity among senior leaders are more profitable. Also, women-led startups outperform their male counterparts.

Despite these facts, women make approximately 20% less than men, only 2% of VC funding goes to women-led companies, and women hold only 32% of senior management roles in global organizations. How can we make sense of these dichotomies?

Called to serve others: Raymond T. Reott (C’77) and Joanne Landgraff Reott (SLL’77) (Parents’13)

As a Georgetown parent, I have experienced the university during two different, widely separate periods, and wanted to point out a significant difference that I believe can be traced back to events in the early ’70s and the decisions made then by a few people whose impact can still be felt today.

When I arrived at Georgetown in 1973, Spring Break was usually a trip to Florida or skiing in the mountains. While there were some tutoring programs, the concept of service was not well-established in the student body. I could see a vast difference when our daughter Kate started at Georgetown in 2009. The concept of service to others was much more firmly established with literally hundreds of students spending significant amounts of their time on various service programs run by the The Center for Social Justice - Georgetown University (CSJ). I believe that change had its beginnings when I attended Georgetown.

In 1975, Kathy Jantzen (NHS’78), a Georgetown nursing student, used her Spring Break to work in an impoverished coal community in West Virginia. She went alone with little university support. At Georgetown, the organized concept of spending Spring Break in service to others started with Kathy Jantzen. This year, we made a more substantial contribution to CSJ to help continue the Spring Break programs that Kathy Jantzen and Rev. McGee began.

In his senior year at Georgetown, Eric Wu (SFS’17)—a longtime soccer player—began to get more serious about nutrition.

“Doing my best Breaking Bad impression, I started mixing protein powders in the basement of my apartment,” he says. Recognizing the potential of this personalized approach, Wu and his best friend from high school, Jahaan Ansari, established a start-up company, Gainful, to sell customized health and nutrition supplements. His new venture, Sobo Foods, features plant-based, sustainable Asian American food products.

Wu traces his passion for promoting healthy products directly back to Georgetown. “The professors encourage students not only to do amazing things in industry, but also to be the change they want to see in the world,” he says.

"John Carroll Weekend has its roots in 1951, when the alumni association began to host an awards dinner that moved each year to a different U.S. city. The gathering honored a few alumni with the association’s highest service award, the John Carroll Award, and bestowed the Patrick Healy Award upon a friend of the university who has made dedicated, impactful service to Georgetown.

Over time, the awards dinner grew into an entire weekend of events: faculty members joined us to lead tours and 'hot topic' panels; attendees took a deep dive into the history, culture, and industry of each city; and the Georgetown community reunited at gatherings large and small throughout the three days."

- Julia Farr (C’88, Parent’19, ’21, ’24), executive director of the Georgetown University Alumni Association
