Graduate Women in Business

The Graduate Women in Business (GWIB) is an organization that serves to empower women to be the fullest expression of themselves by creating inclusive spaces to grow authentic connections, further gender equity and forge partnerships on and off grounds. GWIB hosts events that provide opportunities for career exploration, community, and wellness, and facilitates opportunities to learn and have conversations about gender and what it means to be an ally.

Women at Darden Webinar | December 2018

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.

GWIB has six core values:

  1. Accelerate community development via high-impact events
  2. Create a sense of belonging and foster genuine relationships
  3. Increase understanding around issues of gender equity
  4. Celebrate the intersectionality of individuals within our community
  5. Encourage an inclusive classroom & academic experience
  6. Partner with male allies and the broader community within and beyond Darden

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