On Wednesday, May 19, members of the Episcopal community gathered virtually for the third Women of EA event. The timely topic this year was Networking in the New Normal, the dynamic discussion centered on how women can continue growing in their careers through times of uncertainty.
Engage Episcopal is a virtual alumni speaker series.
The goal is to bring alumni voices and stories to your home. With each conversation, we will highlight the experiences that have defined them, and the career paths they have chosen.

On Wednesday, Dec. 9, The Episcopal Academy Lawyers Network (EALN) hosted the third Engage Episcopal virtual event, a conversation between an alum and a current EA student, which centered around wrongful convictions. The two speakers were welcomed by Pat Devine '05, who, along with Gordon Cooney '77 and Zac Arbitman '05, founded the EALN in 2018.
On Wednesday, Dec. 2, Anne Barr, Hon. moderated the third Engage Episcopal virtual event, a conversation of four EA alumni journalists: Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Jay Branegan '68 and Art Carey '68, POLITICO reporter Lara Seligman '07, and Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Erin McCarthy '13.
The four panelists spoke in-depth about their careers and the changes in their field over the last few decades. Owing to the mix of two seasoned former journalists from the class of 1968 and two young female reporters on the panel, participants were able to enjoy a fascinating conversation on the nature of journalism, the economics of news, the impact of social media on the profession, the difficulties of remaining balanced, and what skills young EA alumni might need to make it in the field.
On Thursday, Nov. 19, Caroline Waxler Levitt '89 moderated the virtual alumni event, Engage Episcopal. The event featured EA alumni business leaders: Courtney Banks Spaeth '92, CEO and founder at growth[period]; Geoff Walker '92, Senior Managing Director at Ankura; and Rob Wright '95, Founder and CEO at World Back at Work.
