Women in Business Club

Women in Business promotes confidence, exploration and drive in female undergraduate students. There is much to be gained from the mentoring advice, insight and discussions that occur in an all-female setting, and the Women in Business Club aims to provide this forum to the women on campus. The club provides female students the opportunity to meet and mentor one another as they learn about the courses available to them in the Raymond A. Mason School, in addition to interview and internship advice and preparation.

Additionally, it is a valuable outlet where students can meet alumni that they can connect with on a deeper level. Women in Business hosts an annual panel at From DoG Street to Wall Street and also invites 2-3 professionals each semester to speak to both male and female students.

Professor Katherine Guthrie serves as the faculty advisor.

Event Highlights

On September 23, undergraduate and graduate students gathered to attend the DoG St. to Wall St. WIB Forum and discussed “The Perceptions of Women in Power.” Using examples of powerful women from politics, business and sports, the group deliberated on the effect of the media on influential women and how they might be treated differently from influential men. Nearly 20 male and female professionals from the finance industry spoke as panelists in the event and over 50 students attended.
