Alumni Spotlights

Welcome! One of the silver-linings in the work of Alumni Engagement this past year has been getting the opportunity to readily meet many of you virtually. Our alumni community is one of the school’s strongest assets – brimming with talent, brilliance, and expertise in a multitude of career paths. 

With the Alumni Spotlights page, we seek to highlight our vibrant community in the many ways you innovate, inspire, and impact meaningful change in the world. Thus far, we have featured stories about alumni frontline workers who have worked tirelessly through the pandemic, creatives who challenge traditional narratives and seek to amplify voices not commonly represented in the media, civil servants who seek to build better communities, and leading thinkers who advance social norms.

Our alumni community is a true force of knowledge and inspiration. We invite you to learn more about where our alumni are now and what they have been up to by scrolling through the profiles below. New spotlights will be added throughout the year and we want to hear your story! Please reach out to me, at and be sure to follow our BWS Alumni Facebook and IG account @bwsalumni for more interactive features! 

I look forward to hearing from you,
Flor M. Cruz
Assistant Director of Alumni Engagement
