Government and Non-Profit – Upcoming Events, Opportunities and Resources

From the advisor:

Well, hello Hoyas! Happy Spring! It is spring, right? I mean, I don’t know about you but this weekend was a bit chilly. As I’ve looked around, though, yes – Spring is here. And how do I know that? Well, we accidentally made a wrong turn driving downtown and ended up around the Tidal Basin and were surrounded by people – and more importantly the nearly-bloomed cherry blossoms!

Of all the things students missed out on during the pandemic, one of the most common things I heard was the chance to be in D.C. and do “D.C. stuff.” Hoyas – now is your chance. I am serious, if you are able to get down to the Tidal Basin in the next two to three days, please go check out the cherry blossoms. It is one of my most favorite things to do. In addition to the flowers, my favorite monuments, the Jefferson Memorial, MLK Memorial and the FDR Memorial also line the tidal basin and make for a pensive and inspiring outing. Be sure to also check the National Cherry Blossom Festival website  (new window)to see what performers may be doing, and any other fun activities taking place in the area. Do classes have you stuck on the Hilltop? Be sure to check out the #bloomcam (new window) – yes it’s a real thing! 

Also – you may notice that getting an appointment time with me may be proving a little more difficult than normal. And that is why I am so excited to introduce you to your new Student Industry Advisor for Government, Eduardo Torres. Eduardo is a senior in the School of Foreign Service, majoring in International Politics and minoring in Portuguese and Diplomatic Studies. He is from the border city of Laredo, Texas. Eduardo has researched border security issues, evidenced by his work in Congress with the House Committee on Homeland Security and the Office of Congressman Henry Cuellar. He also interned with the Department of State’s Foreign Service Institute where he worked on modernizing Spanish language courses taught to Foreign Service Officers. Eduardo is proficient in Spanish and Portuguese. This fall, he will attend the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies Europe campus in Bologna, Italy where he will pursue a Master of Arts in International Affairs. As a 2023 Pickering Fellow, Eduardo will complete two State Department internships in the next two years before beginning his career as a U.S. Foreign Service Officer in 2025. He will begin appointments THIS WEDNESDAY! You can find him under, “Industry Advisor,” –> Government Peer Advisor. 

Enjoy your week!

Facts and figures: Women’s leadership and political participation


“Women’s equal participation and leadership in political and public life are essential to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. However, data show that women are underrepresented at all levels of decision-making worldwide and that achieving gender parity in political life is far off.”
