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.
Wed, Apr 26 Spring Summit 2017: Women in Tech
Come join fellow Booth women to talk about Women in Tech. Hosts Victoria Gustafson (2001) and Zora Senat (2018) will moderate a panel of highly successful women with diverse experience in this space. We will discuss unique opportunities and challenges that the rapidly changing tech marketplace presents to women and share advice on how to capture immediate opportunities and prepare yourself to succeed in the future. After the panel discussion, you will have an opportunity to network and enjoy an open bar and gourmet appetizers in a friendly setting with a great view of Chicago's River North neighborhood. So, join us and bring a friend! Click here for more information and to register.
