Passionate women in business

Women in the School of Business have a new resource in development this semester: student-run organization Women in Business.

“The University of Dayton Women in Business organization is beneficial to UD”s campus because it provides women with the resources to land a job that they are passionate about and will therefore allow them to truly succeed personally and professionally,” said co-founder Bridget Liddell ’14.

Liddell and Rachel Kilbury “14 are excited to bring this organization to campus. Kilbury was inspired at the Winning Women conference she attended in New York City last fall. Other students attending the conference had Women in Business clubs at their schools. “I thought it would be really valuable to bring back to Dayton,” Kilbury said. “There are great opportunities to offer to all women in the business school.”

Kilbury and Liddell want to get as many women in the SBA involved as possible. Though seniors are graduating in two months, they can leave their legacy by offering experience and advice to the underclassmen. The co-founders want women in every business major involved in running the club. Dede Ferry “15 is in charge of finances for WIB and Kilbury says Ferry will contribute to the sustainability of the club, leading after Kilbury and Liddell graduate.

WIB plans to help female business students by bringing in speakers and having workshops on technical skills, resume building, interviewing practices and more. Kilbury said, “The biggest emphasis is that we want to help women in the business school find what they’re passionate about and help them get there.”
