Last Friday evening the IE Women in Business Club kicked-off 2018 helding the first event of the year: welcome drinks at Selfie!
Students from all IE schools, faculty members and IE staff had the opportunity to network with club coordinators and existing members to get to know each other.
It was a great event particularly for the new intake to start their experience in IE, meet fellow students and alumni, and get advice regarding the life at university.
The WIB Club coordinators took the opportunity to present and discuss the new and exciting WIB calendar of activities for 2018. We will continue to organize the Dinner Series, which was extremely successful last year. The upcoming topics are Finance, Communications and Energy.
The Mentorship program, organized with the IE Center of Diversity, this year offers the exclusive collaboration with the American Chamber of Commerce in Madrid.
More networking events and conferences are currently being planned – join the Club on the IE Campus Life to stay tuned on dates and venue details, or check our pages on Facebook and Instagram.
We would like to thank all the students, women and men, that participated to our events for their support and motivation. We hope you will join us and share more great experiences in 2018!
