The Women of Isenberg Conference connects current students and faculty with alumnae to build a support network and community of empowerment for collegiate women in business.


- Our Mission


IN 2014, 

The Isenberg Women in Business Club (WiB), in collaboration with the Undergraduate Programs office, Chase Career Center, Development office, and the support of our first sponsor, Target, successfully launched the Women of Isenberg conference (WOIC). Created to connect current students and alumnae, participants in the conference have the opportunity to share experiences, foster confidence, and discuss challenges and opportunities of being students in the classroom as well as women in the workplace. This event has earned considerable acclaim. Through the generosity of our sponsors, Isenberg students, alumnae, and faculty from diverse backgrounds and industries participate in continued community building. Our goal is to inspire students to build relationships, gain advice from alumnae, and to provide an opportunity for alumnae to become more involved with their University.

The team envisions a grander, more robust conference year by year; each conference has experienced 50% growth in attendance. The past 2016 WOI Conference encompassed 305 total attendees, which included 230 students and 42 speakers. It also consisted of 2 keynote speakers, 9 panels, a luncheon, and networking session.

This year’s WOI Conference will take place at the University of Massachusetts Amherst Campus Center on Saturday February 25, 2017 beginning at 8 am. A snow date for the event will be the following Saturday March 4th, 2017. A cocktail party will be held the Friday night before the event in the Isenberg atrium.


Held at UMass

The 4th annual conference will be held at the Campus Center of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, a convenient location for student attendees and an opportunity for alumnae to return to campus and visit their alma mater. 

Event Lineup

The day long event includes a keynote speaker, 9 different breakout sessions, 3 workshops, a career meet and greet with corporate sponsors and a networking luncheon.
