Events and Programming
The Georgetown Women’s Alliance hosts and sponsors events throughout the year designed to help women at Georgetown grow, learn and thrive. Past events have included skill-building workshops; compelling lectures with prominent women from all industries; networking happy hours and social events; up-close and personal conversations with women leaders; and programs designed to support women in all aspects of their lives.
Whether you’re preparing for your personal career advancement, curious about new research, caring for family members, or simply managing the daily demands of modern life, the Georgetown Women’s Alliance events calendar offers something for everyone.

GWA Monthly Book Club
Once monthly, our GWA Programming Committee hosts a “book” club in which our community come together to discuss books, short readings, or podcasts that relate to diverse experiences of womanhood, inside and outside of the workplace. All events require registration through Eventbrite, which is sent out to our community members by email. Currently, all book club meetings are hybrid.

- Daring Greatly by Brene Brown
