Society of Women in Business

2020 Executive Board

About SWB

The Society of Women in Business was founded in the fall of 1998. Our mission is to give women the essential skills and experiences to succeed in business. We welcome all majors!

Professional Events

We provide networking opportunities by inviting business professionals to campus to speak to SWB about careers in a variety of business disciplines. See some of the companies who have presented to us in the past.

Service Events

Our organization is committed to giving back to the community by actively participating in philanthropic efforts. Previous events have included card-making for soldiers, baking cookies for firemen, partnerships with the Boys and Girls Club, and participation in the campus-wide Day of Service.

Mentoring Events

We introduce resources that can be found on the University of Illinois campus and through other members. This includes resume and cover letter critiques, an Executive Board panel, interview advice, College of Business transfer workshops, and so much more! These events are focused on helping our members develop their professional skills. We recently started a Mentoring Program where our members are matched with MBA students to create a more close-knit community.

Social Events

These events are all about getting to know other members! They might include getting food, hanging out at cool places on campus (like the Illini Union Recreation Room or the ARC, UI Ice Arena, UI Arboretum, etc.), or channeling the creative side of our members with various crafts.
