Purpose: Women in Business strives to empower members to become future leaders in the
business world despite gender-related barriers.
In today’s society where women still
make a lower wage percentage than their male colleagues and less than 10% of
the Fortune 500 companies are owned by females, Women in Business strives to
provide an environment where female business students can gain the confidence
to overcome gender barriers. Women in Business does this by facilitating
discussions with successful businesswomen, organizing professional development
activities, and encouraging its members to speak up for themselves and future
Eligibility: Although the workshops and speakers are tailored for females pursuing a
business degree, Women in Business is open to all majors and genders.
History: Women in Business was established in 2014 by Sara Binkley, Liz DiGennaro,
and Emily Halley to empower female business students to recognize their
potential and worth in the business world.
