Women in Business Club 2014

Written on January 5, 2015 by Campus Life in Professional

wib area31This year in the Women in Business club, we have had various different and interesting events.

For one we had a PwC women leadership series which involves a networking and open round table discussion. However, throughout the year we tried to come up with other interesting ideas to make more people aware of the club and this is when we decided to collaborate with the IE Entrepreneurship club.

Around July is when we decided to have another speaker series. The series featured an IE professor, Paz Ambrosy. Paz took us through a very relaxed open session of her journey from a lawyer to a successful angel investor, followed by questions and answers. On one side she shared her journey as a woman in the industry and some of the struggles she dealt with, and on the other side there were many aspiring entrepreneurs who wanted to know how she had such a broad portfolio ranging from biotech, to NGO’s to consumer goods. As well she gave valuable advice on how to get started with ideas for companies and how to get investors. In the end it was valuable and also inspiring.

Below you can see a picture from the event in Area 31.

As of lately we have been busy working with the Center for Diversity to work on our mentorship program, which will start again next year in 2015. See the link for more information.

As well stay tuned for more networking sessions and speaker series. Our next session will be December 16th from 6:30-8:00 and will be focused on ‘Why and How to Build Long-lasting Professional Connections’. For more details on the event join the following link.
