Welcome to the UCWBG Website!
Alumni roundtables, career conferences, websites, webinars, leadership circles, linking alums to nonprofit boards, women's conferences, mothers' groups, newsletters and emails. What do these all have in common? They are all UCWBG innovations.
We value our community of women who have all navigated an extraordinary education at an extraordinary institution. After 35 years as a Chicago Booth alumnae group, including more than 12 years as a 501(c)(3) organization, UCWBG is currently restructuring. While we rethink our future and future activities, memberships will not be available. However, we will continue to update the website with opportunities that we think are of interest to our community. So stop by our website regularly to see our latest news.
Sat, Jul 1 Stop Spending, Start Managing
Tanya Menon, former Booth faculty & Associate Professor at Ohio State University, will discuss her book Stop Spending, Start Managing: Strategies to Transform Wasteful Habits. Think about your toughest problem at work, and how it's being tackled. Are you finding yourself stuck in endless committees and seeing money spent on consultants and analytics? With all the time and money you're spending on the problem, have you gotten the results you want, or have your actions perhaps made the problem even worse? Learn 5 critical ways we get trapped in problem solving. Ms Menon will lead a discussion about some key ways to catch ourselves in these traps, and get to the heart of the problem.
