Important Update on 2020 Awards Ceremony

In light of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) public health event, the GEMA Alumnae Achievement Awards has been postponed. We want to ensure we find the optimal time for our Georgetown community to come together to honor and celebrate each of our awardees accomplishments and contributions to the media and entertainment industry and guarantee this inaugural celebration is one that will set the tone for the continued recognition of our amazing Hoya women.


GEMA’s Alumnae Achievement Awards celebrate the distinctive accomplishments and contributions of Georgetown alumnae across the spheres of media and entertainment. These awards recognize and honor those Hoya alumnae trailblazers, innovators, and leaders making an impact not only on their industry, but the community, and the world. In the Jesuit spirit of St. Ignatius, these alumnae are setting the world on fire — a fire that is kindling the fires of future generations — all through the medium of media and entertainment.
