60 Years of McDonough Alumnae

A new book, 60 Years of Alumnae: Memories, Milestones, and Momentum, commemorates the past six decades of women at Georgetown McDonough. Through interviews with graduates across programs from each decade, the alumnae paint a picture of the tremendous progress women have made in business and how their Georgetown experiences helped pave their way.
