The Society of Women in Business (SWB), was founded in the fall of 1998. Our mission is to give women the essential skills and experiences to succeed in business. We welcome all majors!
We provide networking opportunities by bringing business professionals to campus to speak to SWB about careers in a variety of business disciplines. See some of the companies who have presented to us in the past.
Our organization is also committed to giving back to the community by participating in a number of service events. Previous events have included card-making for soldiers, baking cookies for firemen, partnerships with the Boys and Girls Club, and participation in the campus-wide Day of Service.
We introduce resources that the University of Illinois and other members can provide. This includes resume and cover letter critiques, an Executive Board panel, interview advice, College of Business transfer workshops and so much more! These events are focused on helping our members. We recently started a Mentoring Program where a group of members are matched with an Executive Board member to create a more close-knit community.
These events are all about getting to know other members! They might include getting food, hanging out at a cool place on campus (like the Illini Union Rec Room or the ARC), or even channeling your creative side with crafts.
