Who We Are

GWA is made up of staff, faculty, and student members from all corners of campus who share an interest in professional development, gendered issues, and camaraderie.

GWA is led by our Steering Committee, which is made up of current Georgetown University staff members of all levels who serve as Chair(s) of their respective committees, as well as our participating student fellows.

This team provides leadership, supports, guidance, and ongoing integration of the GWA mission into each of our committees and their initiatives.

What We Do

GWA fosters connections, learning, and professional development with distinct attention towards uplifting and supporting women and those with historically marginalized gender identities.

We highlight the work of our GU colleagues in our bi-weekly newsletter, host social and professional events, and offer two distinct opportunities for individual mentorship — our Staff Mentoring Program and our Student Fellowship Program.

As a part of GWA, you have the opportunity to take on flexible leadership positions and/or contribute to developing internal programming that supports our mission.
