The Gender+ Justice Initiative engages and supports faculty, scholars, students, thought-leaders, activists and artists.
Through various programs, we support research and impactful projects that address and advance intersectional gender justice. See our programs below:
Gender+ Justice Fellowship
The G+JI offers year-long fellowships to support research projects by Georgetown faculty and students. The fellows receive research support and are part of an intellectual community of scholars across disciplines and career stages whose research intersects with gender+ issues.
The 2020-2021 cohort counts 18 Fellows. Including 6 Faculty Fellows, 12 Graduate Student Fellows and 2 Undergraduate Student Fellows.
Faculty Mentoring Program
To support women faculty research, and particularly junior and women of color faculty, the G+JI launched a Faculty Mentoring Program during the pandemic that consists of pairing Georgetown senior faculty with junior faculty who work on similar issues across campuses and disciplines.
The Program provides exchange, collaboration and support between scholars as well as practical advice on dealing with personal and academic challenges.
Research in Residence
To expands its commitment to Research-Praxis, the G+JI invites intersectional feminist thought-leaders, activists, and artists as Researchers-in-Residence. The 2-year fellowships provides Researchers-in-Residence with research support and opportunities to disseminate their work and collaborate with the Georgetown community on projects related to gender+ justice. The inaugural G+JI Researcher-in-Residence for 2021-2023 is Rokhaya Diallo.
