2020 Reimagining Reentry Conference & COVID-19

In light of the health concerns raised by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Reimagining Reentry events originally planned for March 24-27. This decision was not made lightly, but with significant forethought and concern for all participants.

We hope to reschedule these events for later in the spring or summer of 2020 and will provide further updates in the coming weeks. Regular updates will be posted on this site.

If you have any specific questions, please contact us at pivot@georgetown.edu.

The Georgetown Pivot Program is a new, non-credit-bearing certificate in business and entrepreneurship created specifically for formerly incarcerated individuals. Designed in partnership with the DC Department of Employment Services and delivered by Georgetown faculty, the Pivot Program is a one-year transition and re-entry program centered on a blend of academic work and supported employment.

Congratulations, Pivot Graduates!

In front of friends, family, and faculty at the McDonough School of Business, the inaugural class of fifteen Pivot fellows graduated on June 21st, 2019. “I am proud of my alma mater every day, but this is probably my proudest moment,” said graduation speaker Melissa Bradley, a Georgetown alumna and faculty member.
