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.
Thu, May 25 Competitive Content: Are You Winning?
Social media has upended traditional media and advertising. It's a rapidly changing space - plus, how do you know if you're doing it right? Most people in charge of marketing themselves or for their clients must excel because the stakes are high. It's more than ego. Social media impacts sales, business leads, salaries, career advancement, speaking engagements, book sales, election outcomes and contract terms. Posting content that's relevant to your audience is no longer enough. Join the Marketing Roundtable to learn how to build stronger corporate and personal brand by creating content that outperforms the competition. Click here for more information and to register.
Fri, Jun 2 deadline Alumni Board Connect
Alumni Board Connect matches Chicago Booth alumni with nonprofit organizations to serve as directors on their boards. Through this program, both the alumni and the organizations benefit from the effective matching service and subsequent networking and educational opportunities. Alumni Board Connect is now available to alumni living in Chicago, Twin Cities, and New York City. Chicago Booth alumni living in those cities who graduated at least three years ago (including and prior to 2013) are eligible to apply to ABC. The deadline for alums living in Chicago is Friday, June 2. Click here to learn more about this opportunity from the Chicago Booth Social Enterprise Initiative.
Do You Have a blog?
It's interesting the number of UCWBG members who have blogs. We've created a webpage to list the blogs we know about. Click here to check it out. Let us know about your blog. Send the address to email@example.com. We'll put a link in the UCWBG website and possibly the next email.
