Georgie Howe

Oceania (Australia)

With unique experiences growing up in and advising Australia’s public school educational system, Georgie strongly believes in the power of early academic interventions. Having witnessed the immense opportunity gaps that can result from educational disengagement at an early age, Georgie is passionate about ensuring that lifelong learning remains a preventative tool against societal challenges.

A native of Melbourne, Australia, Georgie is currently a consultant for Ernst & Young, primarily focused on advising public-sector organizations like the Department of Health and Human Services, including Child Protection and Disability Services, in the mitigation of systemic risks to underserved communities.

 

Prior to embarking on her professional career, Georgie trained as an elite athlete, representing both Princeton University and Australia in collegiate and international rowing competitions. A 3-time Ivy League Champion and a multiple-year All-Ivy, All-Region, and All-America honoree, Georgie also represented Team Australia on the world stage in both the 2014 and 2015 U23 World Championships, as well as the 2015 World Championships in Aiguebelette, France. Alongside her involvement with Preface, Georgie serves as the Co-Chair of the Melbourne branch of Princeton University’s Alumni Schools Committee and is a member of both the Rowing Australia Athletes’ Commission and Ernst & Young’s Gender Inclusion Network for Oceania.

 

An alumna of Melbourne Girls’ Grammar School, Georgie graduated with an A.B. in Classics from Princeton University, while simultaneously obtaining a certificate in Medieval Studies.
