On behalf of Oxford Women in Business I would like to extend a warm welcome to Hilary term 2022. I hope that you will join us in the workshops, panels and social events that we have lined up for the coming weeks! From all of us at Oxford Women in Business good luck in all of your endeavours in 2022!
OxWIB is a community that aims to empower young women to become value driven leaders and entrepreneurs. Our purpose is to ensure that you will leave Oxford equipped with the tools to navigate the professional world with financial literacy, a professional network and unshakable confidence. We aim to increase accessibility to industries that are notoriously difficult to break into. Our mentorship scheme always works to provide support to break through these industries, defeating stigma and exclusivity. We believe young women can approach their next step in life looking to disrupt the status-quo. Whether that be via sustainability, innovation in tech or sport, we encourage you explore your passions with us!
Hilary term is one that we have been looking forward to! Michaelmas allowed us to get settled into Oxford again. We were able to host in person events again, including our president’s drinks, networking events and skills workshops. Although we face a term where we are uncertain about restrictions, we are hopeful and positive about the events we have planned. I am excited to announce the continuation of our Inspirational Women Series. This term we will welcome Alison Rose, CEO of Natwest, and Tilly Rose, Founder of That Oxford Girl. We will also be hosting panels on digital health, sport and impact investing. To combat the stress of Oxford during term time we will also be hosting yoga classes, self defense lessons and social drop ins at various locations around Oxford. Make sure you watch out for the tickets for President’s Drinks- all of our events are open to everyone and would love to see some new faces! We will be working with Said Business school, Cambridge WIB, Durham WIB, OxFID and OxWEST to deliver a host of other events that we hope will excite and entertain! All of these opportunities and events will be displayed on our term card.
Finally, I would like to thank the Hilary term committee for their ongoing, tireless work. The dedication and drive of this team of incredible young women is demonstrated by the range of events and articles available to our members. Thank you to our Events team, Marketing team, Investment Operations team, Membership team, Mentorship team and Sponsorship team for all that you have achieved. It is an honour to be a member of such an amazing community and I would encourage everyone to get more involved in OxWIB.
I wish you a successful and enjoyable term. I look forward to meeting you at our events!
With my warmest wishes,
President, Hilary Term 2022
