TONIGHT, Feb. 2nd: Women in Business Conference
My team and I are throwing the first ever Women in Business Conference at UC San Diego tomorrow evening, and I would like to extend an invitation out to anyone who is interested. Inspired by the annual Women in Business Conference at Harvard University, we will be hosting the first WIB on our campus that serves to promote an inclusive, diverse culture in all industries and strives to empower young women to become future leaders who will make a meaningful and positive impact.
· Time: Feb 2 Tuesday, 5:00 – 8:00 PM
· Location: Meeting Rooms in Fifteen (The Village West Tower). Photos of the venue: here
- Attire: Business Casual
What can you get out of participating in the conference?
- Preparation for entering the workforce: During our keynote sessions, Emmy Sobieski, a Senior Research Analyst at Nicholas Investment Partners, and Sylvia Mah, CEO of Hera-LABS and Hera Fund, will share how they made it to where they are now, what obstacles they confronted at work, how they overcame those obstacles, and how they demonstrated leadership and carved their own path to achieving professional success and personal fulfilment.
- Building your network: You can expect more than 100 participants. The Networking Dinner is where you can meet other aspiring professionals in a casual setting with food and drinks. Sponsored by Whova mobile event app, participants will have the access to exchange contact information after the conference to help maintain and grow a strong professional network. The link to download the app from the Apple App store or the Google Play store will be sent via email after you complete your registration.
- Mentorship: There will be more than ten industry leading professionals in attendance that can help guide and empower participants through professional mentorship that focuses on career development and advancement.
The issues facing women in the workforce and the message that the Women in Business conference strives to bring are not solely ideas targeted specifically towards women, but are ideas that need to be shared and discussed by all. By promoting a diverse and inclusive environment on campus, we encourage participation from all people.
