As one of the largest and most sponsored society on campus, we aim to champion gender equality within the corporate world through collaboration with our sponsors and help women thrive in traditionally male-dominated industries.
While other business related societies tend to take a broad approach in addressing career insight issues, none are dedicated to addressing the specific challenges that women face through various stages of their career. The LSESU Women in Business society (WiB) seek to fill this niche. We provide industry insight, skills workshops, mentoring and networking opportunities for our members to equip them with the tools they need to assume strong and successful roles in business.
Women in Business Conference (WiBCon):
On Saturday 2nd November 2019, we are holding our annual Women in Business Conference. The event comprises interactive panels, Q&As, skills workshops and networking sessions with leading female representatives from our sponsors and other major organisations supporting the movement towards gender equality in the professional sphere.
We'll be posting more information about the events soon!
Please note that your place is only confirmed when you receive a confirmation email from us!
Women Empowerment Week:
From 17th February - 21st 2020 (LT Week 5), we will be holding our inaugural Women Empowerment Week in partnership with other LSE societies in order to bring greater awareness to the challenges women face in the workplace and beyond.
We want women to be able to take control of their own lives and to freely make decisions concerning their careers. Society has made great progress in advancing this but empowerment first comes from within. We aspire to help women from all financial and socio-economic backgrounds to develop personally, to realise their true potential, and to have confident in and trust in their abilities. We want to celebrate the achievements of our members and assist them in building a supportive network of like-minded individuals.
We will be having an event EACH DAY of the week including a Women in Technology, Women in Development Summit, a night to celebrate the achievements of women!
Look out on our Facebook page for upcoming details!
