    Women Helping Women: Building the Next Generation of Female Business Leaders

    02/16/2018 2:42 PM | Jan Molino (Administrator)

    How many of you know about the Women in Business Initiative Board with the School of Business at George Mason University? 

     It is an exciting initiative with a mission to build a supportive network of female business professionals who can assist and open doors for Mason’s current female students, female alumni and other businesswomen. 

    Yes, it is for women! Consider this the “club” for today’s woman! Professional women like us owe it to young women to help them get a head start on their careers and provide them with opportunities to meet successful role models. I wish I had an executive woman role model when I was in college. That’s why I am on the Women in Business Initiative board.

    This year we will have four events that truly require great sponsors (like all of you) who have influence in your companies and to support recruiting top-performing female talent for your companies. You will also get the opportunity to be a provider of business insight in support of women in the workplace. These events are ideal if you are looking to mentor students, hire interns or young alumni, or get your company’s brand out in front of future employees.

    • The Tips for Success event is hosted by the Women in Business Initiative with support of the School of Business Career Services. Hosted in the fall, this event presents one employer a unique opportunity to interact with School of Business students, faculty, staff, and young alumni. This interactive panel event is geared towards offering our students tips from professionals in the industry. As a sole sponsor and partner in action, you stand side-by-side with the School of Business as we inspire and teach the next generation of women entering the workforce.
    • The Women in Business Etiquette Presentation is hosted in the spring and this event presents one employer a unique opportunity to interact “up close and personal” with School of Business students and young alumni. This interactive luncheon and dinner is geared towards teaching our students business and dinning etiquette from professionals.
    • 3rd Annual Tour of Greater Northwest Wine Reception. This event supports Women in Business funded student scholarships at George Mason University. Who doesn’t enjoy a great glass of wine? And who would walk away from the opportunity to help a women be the first to graduate college in her family! Sip on Greater Northwest wines courtesy of Vienna Vintner, indulge in regional hors d'oeuvres, and get you passport stamped for chances to win wine-themed door prizes. Check out the photos from last year’s event here! Mark your calendars for Thursday, May 3, 6:00-8:30 p.m. Country Club of Fairfax. Register:http://business.gmu.edu/womeninbusiness/program/
    • Power Networking for Women, July 2018. Join us for an evening of networking and wine with the most influential businesswomen in the national capital region. Build your network and share knowledge while supporting Mason's effort to promote women in the workplace. Here are some great photos from the event
    So, let's make a real investment in future women leaders!
