Thank you for an amazing 2020/2021 year to everyone who attended our events! We hope you learned new things along the way and we're excited for next year! See you soon!
Introducing our 3rd annual event, The Rise! The Rise is inspired by International Women’s Day to bring together women from all areas of business to discuss their personal and professional career journeys. Every year, International Women’s Day releases a new theme that will serve as the topic of discussions for The Rise. This years theme is #ChooseToChallenge!
Women In Consulting
In collaboration with Goodman Consulting Association, WIB hosted the first event of 2021… Women in Consulting - an event focused on the female experience in the consulting industry! Consultancy is a key industry where the number of male employees and executives outweigh the number of female employees and executives. In order to prepare the next generation of men and women entering this field, our moderated panel explored the panelists’ career paths to consulting, as well as challenges they overcame, and the future of consulting!
WIB After Dark
We hosted one of our biggest events - WIB AFTER DARK! This event focuseed on the challenges women face in the workplace and we discussed “taboo” topics that may be uncomfortable to speak about in a formal panel discussion. WIB After Dark created a safe environment where students and industry professionals had a honest conversation about the double-bind dilemma, microaggressions, and negotiations. All attendees had the opportunity to network and chat with our speakers!
Women In Operations with Amazon Operations
Brock Women in Business hosted yet another VIRTUAL event of the year: the Women in Operations Panel! This event focused on highlighting experiences, career learnings, and journeys from women working in the operations field. We demystified what a career in operations means. We had a great discussion about each of the speakers' career journeys, followed by a Q&A session where all attendees had the opportunity to network with our speakers.
Women In IT Panel
Our second VIRTUAL event of the year: The Women in IT Panel! A Career in technology isn't just about coding - WIB demystified what it means to have a career in technology and had the chance to hear from women working in technology-driven fields. We discussed trends in technology and explored how our speakers navigated their careers.
The Entrepren-HER Panel
This event focused on the representation of women and their entrepreneurial careers. We highlighted different start-up businesses created by female entrepreneurs across different industries!
