After a long summer vacation, Michaelmas term beckons in the start of a new academic year and a host of new opportunities, not least for those of you who have just begun their time at Oxford! The committee at OxWIB have been working tirelessly over the past few months to put together one of our most exciting term cards yet to help you on your path to a career in business.
Our panels this term cover a diverse range of topics, from an introduction to a career in consulting, the growth of sustainable business, and the changing climate of the media, all featuring women at the very top of their field. In these discussions, we will be addressing some of the most pressing issues of the day and finding out how women are shaping the narrative.
We are also thrilled to offer a number of networking opportunities to our members this term, including our Speed Networking event where you will be able to meet women working in a variety of sectors, whether that be law, PR, finance or NGOs, and speak to them one-on-one in an informal setting, all in the space of one evening!
A year on from our inaugural edition, our fourth copy of Insight, OxWIB’s termly magazine, is here, including articles, interviews and other pieces focussed on the theme of progress. As 2019 marks forty years since many colleges first admitted female students, this is a fantastic opportunity to look back on how far women have come.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with such an impressive committee over the past few months, and I cannot wait to see their hard work come to fruition! I hope you will make the most of our amazing events this term, and I look forward to meeting you soon,
President, Michaelmas Term 2019
