Graduate Women in Business

  • GWIB 2016-17


    The Graduate Women in Business (GWIB) is an organization that provides a forum for students, alumnae, faculty and female professionals to discuss the issues and challenges women face in their careers and offers activities that build awareness of women in leadership positions. GWIB sponsors social and professional activities as well as providing volunteer opportunities within the community.

    Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.

    Benefits of GWIB include support, leadership, mentorship, career development, and community involvement.
