Roundtables, career conferences, websites, webinars, women's summits, networking events, newsletters and emails: all of these have been UCWBG innovations.
Since The University of Chicago Women’s Business Group’s founding in 1980, more than 200 women have served on its Board of Directors. Many other leading women have been active on UCWBG committees, with special projects and our Advisory Council.
To celebrate the leaders who have brought us so successfully to our 35th Anniversary, we are planning a luncheon at Maggiano's Little Italy Restaurant in the Old Orchard Shopping Center. All current and past UCWBG members are invited to join this celebration.
This is the date to reconnect with friends and make new connections. It is another opportunity to experience the "power of the Booth alumnae network."
You are the stars of this show. Be sure to join us for the fun; make sure your UCWBG colleagues know about this celebration and bring them along. There will be LOTS of time to visit with old friends and to make new ones, to reminisce and to look to the future. So let's get together and raise our glasses to toast UCWBG!
35th Anniversary Directory
We'll also put together a directory of those who have made UCWBG what it is today. The directory will be available from the UCWBG website in a downloadable format. So when you register please complete the questionnaire.
Even if you can't join us, we still want to know what you're up to now. So please fill out the questionnaire.
