WIF (Women In Finance) is FIBER’s initiative by which we look to highlight and profile lady DCOB students at JU who are pursuing careers in finance, accounting, economics, investment banking, equity research, or similar industries.
With gender equality still lagging across corporate America and long from where it needs to be, FIBER wants to do its part in being a proponent for women having the same place in the workforce as their male counterparts. Whether it’s the cubicle, board room, or C-suite, we want women to win in their careers just as much as men.
Goals & Ways to Be Involved
Profiling Women In the Workforce – If you’re a current student, an alumni of DCOB, or an experienced professional not directly related to JU, we would like to profile your experience and knowledge gained on site through a simple Q&A post format. Feel free to email FIBER about being profiled or the name of someone you believe would make for a quality Q&A post.
Panel Discussions & Speakers – FIBER hopes to hold panel discussions on the current trends around work culture for women, how to advance and stand out in your career as a woman, women issues in the workforce, and corporate gender equality in general. We also hope to host speaker engagements with women in the workforce locally and hear of and learn from their experiences.
Highlighting Current Trends – The only way to know about ongoing issues within our corporate culture is to be continually reading about them and profiling them. If you’ve listened to a lecture on women’s issues in business, or read a book or an article on relevant items on the role of women in corporate culture, use FIBER as a platform to discuss it and write as a guest-author on site.
