Kate will be here on Sunday October 23rd, and there will be a public event with Kate that afternoon to mark the occasion.
This is a moment we have all been anticipating as it will be Kate’s first visit to the Statue, almost 2 years to the day from when it was unveiled.
We don’t have many more details to share at this point but we will keep you all informed as the weekend’s plans and festivities unfold.
Stay tuned, and get excited.

Imposters Among Us

Please note that just like Kate Mulgrew on Twitter, we have an imposter!

There are social media accounts & a website dedicated to The Janeway Statue that are not genuine.

Kathryn Janeway is an amazing role model who deserves to be celebrated.  We fully support fan driven websites and other social media content.  We do not support sites that appear be official Janeway Collective accounts, but are not.

If you encounter the website or social media accounts shown, do not interact with them.  The Janeway Collective, INC. cannot be held responsible for the content contained within, or the data collected from them.

What Happens in Vegas

Two board members of the Collective attended the 55 Year Tour in Las Vegas this year, and were able to do something speciatular.

Upon a formal vote of the collective, they were authorized to provide Jeri Taylor with a bronze communicator made of the same bronze as The Janeway Statue, and one of our JK Woodward prints.

Thankfully we were able to get video of the event and are happy to share it with you.

Jeri provided some excellent words of kindness about our mission.  We are without words to describe what it feels like to have the person who created Kathryn Janeway praise what we have done, and continue to do.

Onward We Go

Today we publicly announce that the Janeway Collective is its own, federally recognized, 501c3! While we have operated as a non-profit under our fiscal sponsors Artisan Alley, who we thank elsewhere, we are now independent and ready to carry on our mission: to maintain the monument, continue to promote the teaching of STEM, and to support and honor the achievements of all women in science and beyond.

Pursuing our mission in 2021 has been a challenge. Between all the work involved in this transition, social media problems that had to be resolved, cicadas everywhere for 6 weeks, and of course covid, The Collective has not been as active as we hoped to be. The monument stands, and as your pictures attest it has been enjoyed and appreciated by hundreds. We want it to be more than just a static tribute to a great person.

We will soon begin our the long hinted at membership system. We want to involve you more, and give away some swag, so for a small donation anyone can become a member of The Collective and get a voice in our decisions.

We have also put together an agreement with the Harmony School to collaborate on educational programming and related projects. Harmony’s mission is “prepare young people to live in and contribute to a heterogeneous democratic country … teach critical thinking and academic skills, nurture each student’s unique voice, all while promoting physical, social, emotional, and creative growth.” They are a natural partner.

Will there be activities or gatherings, such as an annual birthday party? We hope so, but that is something our Board, with the input of members, will decide in the coming months. And finally, did I mention swag? We will have a whole new selection of Janeway Monument items available that we know you will all love.

Onward we go. The Janeway Collective is reborn. Thank you all for joining us on the adventure so far, we look forward to being with you for years to come.
