President's Welcome

     We open our term with our President's Drinks, which will take place at Freud. The following weeks are packed with a fantastic range of events, which promise something interesting for everyone. Our panels this term offer insights into the careers of lawyers, student entrepreneurs, and those at the forefront of FinTech, and are sure to spark engaging discussions regarding the narratives women are driving across different business sectors. Come be inspired by the leading women we have invited to speak as part of our 'Inspirational Women' series, and join us at our staple networking sessions with top firms from a range of industries.


     We would also like to invite you to our fortnightly drop-in sessions. Hilary can be a daunting term, marked by application deadlines and assessment centres. We hope to offer support during this period by using our drop-ins as a time to work with you through examples of the tasks you can expect to face during the application process, so that you feel more confident and comfortable when it really matters.


     'Innovation' is an apt word to describe OxWIB's growth as we move into a new decade. Not only is it the theme of our fifth edition of Insight, it is also applicable to the introduction of our new 'Global Expansion' team.


     At the same time as welcoming our 2000th member in Oxford, we hope to increase our reach to universities nationally and internationally, and to expand our network of motivated young businesswomen by connecting even more bright business talents.


     Before I leave you to dive into our calendar of events, I would like to take a moment to thank the committee for all their hard work over the vac. It has been a true pleasure to work with them, and I am confident that their dedication and creativity will continue to shine throughout this term.


     We look forward to welcoming you to our events, and wish you a successful Hilary!

Anna Zakonyi

President, Hilary Term 2020
