Women in Business

Starting in 2006, the student-run Women in Business Conference has been an opportunity for alumnae and students to learn from one another and network. The annual event celebrates, honors and inspires the success of Holy Cross women in business. 


Annual Women in Business Conference

Year after year we are inspired by the number of alumnae attending from around the world and grateful for the opportunity students have to engage with the robust network of women in business.   We invite you to join us to hear from experienced alumnae speakers, have meaningful conversations, and connect with the growing community. 

Thank you for joining us at 17th annual conference held on Saturday, November 19, 2022!

Networking is a year-round practice, well beyond the one-day conference. Continue to make meaningful connections through the official conference app.
