The purpose of Berkeley Women in Business is to provide professional development, create career-networking opportunities, and educate women about contemporary issues in the business world. Our objective is to provide the resources for our members to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for future employment in the professional industries.
Through weekly meetings, members quickly become integrated into a closely-knit group. Members from diverse backgrounds and majors encourage each other to explore new interests and new activities. Additionally, we offer mentorships, retreats, dinners, and events for our members to get to know one another.
BWIB was established to address these unique challenges that female business professionals face in a comfortable and welcoming environment. Through info sessions, panels, conferences, skill-building workshops, and social events, BWIB seeks to expose members to a variety of business careers.
In order to give our members the greatest edge in their future careers, we have developed relationships with top employers from industries ranging from accounting to investment banking to consulting. The intimate size of our meetings ensures that each member gets face-to-face contact with the employers they are interested in.
