Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Career Initiatives

DEI Initiatives Banner

Your support allows us to partner with employers and alumni to deliver a breadth of leadership, skill building, and mentorship programs for students who identify as diverse.

About

Our priority as the career services body at Georgetown is to achieve excellence by building infrastructure that promotes the well-being of all students in our community and celebrates our diversity. We advocate for the needs of our students, and our partnerships and initiatives will be equitable and inclusive. We create an environment in which all students feel heard, supported, and empowered in their lifelong career development journey.

It is our mission to educate ourselves, our students and our employers on the various aspects of diversity, how it exists at Georgetown, in the workplace, and how we can support students of all identities. We work to achieve this mission through:

Webinars and Workshops

Our three core workshops–Resumes and Cover Letters, Interviewing Well, How to Search for a Job or Internship–have been reworked to acknowledge the diversity, equity and inclusion context. These are further customized and hosted for distinct student populations and groups on campus such as The Women’s Center, the Georgetown Scholarship Program, Pivot Fellows, the Black Student Union.

Cawley Leadership Development Program

A mentorship program in which first year and sophomore students of color are paired with alumni of color. Students participate in employer-hosted leadership events for their cohort, take a strengths inventory assessment and receive feedback and guidance from their mentors.

In spring 2021, 24 students were mentored by 19 alumni.

Diversity Career Forum

Through panels, presentations, workshops, and a career fair, students gain insight into industry and employer-specific DEI programs, learn to navigate disability disclosures and accommodations in the hiring process and workplace, and network with alumni.
