"The mission of GW Women in Business (GWWIB) is to provide undergraduate women of all GW schools, with the necessary resources to excel in the workforce; aiming to foster a network where members can learn and grow through our main focus areas: Careers, Connections, and Community."
To "guide undergraduate women to success," both personally and professionally.
During the summer of 2006, two separate groups of GW seniors—Lehman Brothers interns Julie Beggans and Desiree Shapouri and Bear Stearns interns Katie Considine and Samara Daniels—conceived an organization for undergraduate women interested in pursuing professional careers. The two groups of students approached the School of Business in the early fall about the possibility of starting the organization. In the spirit of cooperation and recognition that working together would strengthen and improve the success of the endeavor, the two camps united to bring GW Women in Business to campus.
