The following student and alumni organizations at Chicago Booth are key partners in our efforts to meet the educational and career goals of women students.
Chicago Women in Business (CWiB) - CWiB is one of the largest and most active student groups at Chicago Booth. CWiB's mission is to connect and provide support to all women at Chicago Booth through networking events, luncheon speaker series, partnerships with other organizations, mentoring programs, and social events. CWiB creates a powerful forum at Chicago Booth where future female business leaders can learn from, share with, and inspire one another.
Chicago Booth Women's Network - Founded by alumnae volunteers in 2002, Chicago Booth Women's Network offers a global community for Chicago Booth women while supporting and promoting women in business worldwide. In addition to participating in admission events, members cohost "Women's Week" receptions for interested students to learn more about Chicago Booth from a woman's perspective.
Mothers at Booth (MaB) - MaB helps student mothers and eventual working mothers-to-be achieve academic and professional success while maintaining a vibrant family life. MaB believes that greater visibility and information about motherhood during and after business school will allow both prospective and current students to make more informed and satisfying academic and career decisions. The group hosts several professional and social events throughout the year that build community among its members and promote networking among colleagues and alumnae.
University of Chicago Women’s Business Group (UCWBG) - UCWBG is a nonprofit alumnae association organized to address the professional, personal, and career developmental needs of women graduates of Chicago Booth. Celebrating over 30 years, UCWBG offers opportunities to network, enhance skills through classes, lectures, and workshops, as well as develop strong relationships to Chicago Booth and the University of Chicago.
Common Chromosome - Common Chromosome is an inclusive gender equity group with the mission to challenge the barriers that prevent inclusion and equal treatment of genders in the workplace. Members create a safe environment for open and honest conversation and seek to be at the forefront of the gender parity movement through a series of special guest lectures, discussions, and awareness campaigns.
