Young Women in Business UBC
Young Women in Business UBC strives to inspire and connect ambitious young professionals to achieve their full potential. Our engaging, uniquely designed events and programs cover many topics in business such as entrepreneurship, finance, and sustainability. Through networking events, a case-competition, and more, our events allow members to explore different industries, take on challenges, and build meaningful connections. With the business world still being male-dominated, we hope to connect our members with female leaders that will inspire them and serve as relatable role models.
In addition to our event, YWiB has two programs that allow members to get more involved in the community. Our Blossom Mentorship program pairs students with female leaders in their industry of interest, and helps facilitate that relationship throughout the school year. Our YWiB Philanthropy program connects members with volunteer opportunities, providing a platform for giving back.
Open to all genders and faculties, our goal is to provide ample opportunities for young professionals at UBC while building an empowering community where members can create industry connections, build friendships, and grow.
