Women in Business

The Sauder Women in Business Club (WiB) was officially founded in February, 2010. Our mission is to encourage women to take leadership roles in their future careers, thereby increasing diversity in business. We will achieve our mission by providing developmental opportunities, links to the greater business and social community, and events that unify our MBA class.

In conjunction with other MBA Society clubs, we invite supportive business leaders and entrepreneurs from a variety of functional areas to address the issues of inequality in the workplace. Our members also work towards charitable contributions, with a focus on volunteering with organizations that aims to assist women in challenging situations.

As a member, you will receive ongoing communication regarding upcoming networking events in Vancouver. Furthermore, you will be invited to participate in regular meetings to discuss the barriers presently faced by minorities in the workplace, and to brainstorm potential solutions.

The club also works closely with the program administrators in an effort to increase applications and enrolments from women into UBC’s MBA. We hope you will join us, both male and female students, and demonstrate your desire for a more diverse future.
