Beeck Center Releases Impact Report Highlighting a Year of Sustained Growth and Innovative Partnerships

The Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation at Georgetown University is thrilled to release our 2023 Impact Report, a reflection on our work, accomplishments, and impact last year. In the report, we highlight the successes of our project teams, the contributions of our many new staff members and student analysts, our growing engagement with students across Georgetown University, and our crucial network of partners and funders. 

In 2023, we hosted 30 events with a total of more than 4,000 attendees, engaged with more than 3,000 practitioners in our networks, received $7 million in new funding commitments, published 18 reports, and welcomed nine new staff members. In March, Lynn Overmann joined the Beeck Center as our new executive director, and her transformative leadership continues to inspire our teams and drive our impact.

“As we reflect on a year of high-impact work and targeted growth at the Beeck Center, I am honored to lead a team dedicated to facilitating equitable systems change, fostering innovation, and inspiring the next generation of social impact leaders,” Overmann said. 

This year, the Beeck Center ran six different projects all designed to solve pressing societal challenges, ranging from delivering public benefits, to leveraging digital transformation best practices, to increasing government capacity to deliver on policy and administration priorities. From hosting public events to publishing reports to gathering changemakers in common spaces, all six projects made great strides in creating tangible impact on the communities and goals they target. 

As we enter 2024, which marks the 10th anniversary of our founding, we look forward to the opportunity to acknowledge our achievements, yet we are also humbled by the work still to be done. We know that the next 10 years will hold new challenges to tackle and future accomplishments to celebrate, so we encourage you to follow along with our teams’ incredible work as we continue to target transformation at scale.
