Alumnae and students are invited to campus to join the 16th annual Women in Business conference on Saturday, November 13, 2021. The safety and preferences of our community are a top priority for the organizing committee which is why we are offering multiple ticket options, including in-person, remote, and a combination of both options. We were thrilled with the geographical reach the virtual format provided students and alumnae from around the world. Thank you for coming together to support knowledge sharing and networking in all of the new ways possible.
