How did you get involved with Women in Business?

We both joined Women in Business (WIB) our freshman year and both immediately fell in love with the energy in the room from the very first meeting. It was such a welcoming environment – everyone was so kind and made it easy to form connections with new people, especially as an underclassmen. We felt seen, heard, and appreciated.

What is your mission or goal through WIB here at Marquette?

Our mission with WIB is to empower our fellow female business students with the tools and mindsets they need to grow within our male-dominated workforce. Though we may be a minority, it is our mission to ensure that our voices are heard and inspire within our future positions as leaders. We also hope to provide a space where female students can create relationships with each other, as well as potential employers.

How do you hope to carry that on after Marquette?

We hope that we can continue to provide a support system to our female colleagues, helping them believe that they can do whatever they set their mind to. Failures will come, but we must use these setbacks to push us forward to help us thrive within our environments. We, also, would just love to continue to empower the women around us, because empowered women empower women. The more strong, intelligent women we can have in the workplace who feel seen, heard, and respected as a colleague, the better.
