- 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 (WOI) Conference. Created to connect current students and alumnae, participants of 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, connected through their Isenberg roots, 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 the University.

The Conference is entirely driven by student planners, and guided by a steering committee of Isenberg staff and alumni. The team envisions a grander, more robust Conference year by year. Over the past 6 years, the Conference has experienced a 255% growth in attendees. By 2018, the team achieved their first ever sold out Conference with 440 attendees, including 291 students and 41 speakers. The team replicated that again for 2019’s Conference.

The 2020 WOI Conference will take place at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst on Saturday, February 22, 2020. The snow date for the event will be Saturday, March 7, 2020. A Cocktail Reception will be held the Friday night before the event in the Isenberg School of Management, and is open to all registered speakers, alumni, faculty, and student ambassadors.
