7 Reasons to Get Excited for Women’s Week!

Women's Week BannerCWiB is delighted to present Women’s Week 2015, which is starting on Monday February 23rd!  There will be a diverse array of events celebrating the female community at CBS and highlighting the accomplishments of women in the business world.  This year’s theme is In Her Shoes.  In order to get everyone as excited about Women’s Week as we are, we’ve identified seven reasons why you should look forward to Women’s Week.

  1. In Her Shoes Swag: We are giving out tons of free goodies related to the theme of the event. If you haven’t already, stop by our table in Uris Deli from 12:30-2pm during Women’s Week for your shoe laces, fruit by the foot, buttons, and sunglasses!
  2. Women in Finance and Tech Industry Panels: Learn about the careers of women leaders in the finance and tech industries at two panels on Monday night. The tech panel will feature panelists from YouTube, Salesforce.com, and other cutting-edge companies.  The finance panel includes women in a variety of finance functions at companies including Wilton Capital Group, Deutsche Bank, Siemens Capital Company, Vistage International, and more.
  3. Learn Why Women Matter: A school-wide CBS Matters will feature presentations from CWiB Co-President Sophia Dadas, Assistant Dean Angela Lee, and Nate Walcker ’15. This is your chance to hear members of the CBS community share why women matter to them.
  4. Empower Your Voice: CWiB members can attend a workshop to improve their public speaking voice and communicate more effectively as a leader. The workshop will be taught by Judith Weinman, a speech and voice coach, and will offer tips and strategies to develop a stronger voice and presence.
  5. Capture Women’s Week at Happy Hour: CWiB will be sponsoring Thursday Night Happy Hour in Uris. In addition to the usual happy hour fun, CWiB will have a photo booth and everyone is encouraged to capture and share the spirit of Women’s Week!
  6. For the Gentlemen–Become a Manbassador: While Women’s Week is focused on celebrating the female community of CBS, we invite all CBS community members—men and women—to promote the advancement of women in business. CBS men can show their support by signing up to become a Manbassador.
  7. Meet Tamara Mellon, Former Chief Creative Officer and Founder of Jimmy Choo: Stand in the shoes of Tamara Mellon at the Fireside Chat, which will be moderated by journalist Alina Cho. Hear what it takes to launch a luxury brand of designer shoes, handbags, and accessories, and get your questions answered at this intimate discussion.
