Title:2021 Women’s Forum sees record attendance, extraordinary conversations

More than 2,000 people participated in the 2021 Georgetown University Virtual Women’s Forum last month, record-breaking attendance for the annual event that also drove $40,000 in donations to Georgetown’s COVID-19 Response & Resilience Fund. In lieu of an attendance fee, participants were able to make a voluntary contribution.

The Forum featured five days of stimulating conversation among a diverse, engaging group of Georgetown-affiliated women, as you’ll see in the featured video clip from one of the panels: “The Great She-cession: COVID-19, the Future of Work, and Women” with Leah Evert (MBA’19) of McCormick & Company, Pamela Lipp-Hendricks (C’92) of JPMorgan Chase & Co, Maya Raghu (L’98) of the National Women’s Law Center, Rachel Thomas (C’93) of LeanIn.Org, Dr. Adriana Kugler, and McCourt School Dean Maria Cancian.

Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff was a surprise special guest at the forum, which featured panel discussions on a host of topics as well as interactive workshops such as cheese tasting.
