FSU College of Business hosts Women in Business annual conference
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State University College of Business’ Women in Business (WiB) student organization will host their Fourth Annual Women in Business Conference this Friday, Jan. 21 in the Union Ballroom.
The conference, themed this year: “Your Best Foot Forward – Taking Steps Toward a Successful Future,” brings together current students, alumni, faculty and women business leaders to celebrate the accomplishments of women around the world, in both their professional and personal lives. The one-day conference addresses relevant issues that women face as they emerge as business leaders.
This year, WiB welcomes back Susan Cuthbertson, who graduated from the FSU College of Business with degrees in accounting and finance, to give the keynote address. In addition to the keynote address, the conference will offer participants two breakout sessions with female panelists that will feature discussions on networking, professional etiquette, internships and graduate school.
The conference will culminate with the Women in Business Networking Fair featuring guests that can offer internship and career opportunities as well as resources for women in business.
The Women in Business organization was started by the College of Business’ Student Leadership Council in an effort to promote an awareness of the dynamic role women play in today's business environment and establish a forum for developing a critical discourse of that role. The organization has a central focus on connecting students with resources across the country.
“The FSU College of Business students are among the most ambitious and innovative. The Women in Business organization was initiated four short years ago by students who saw a need for more access to business leaders,” said Caryn L. Beck-Dudley, dean of the College of Business. “The dedication of our students has turned the Women in Business organization into a student group that yields successful internships, mentoring and jobs for our students.”
