WOMEN IN BUSINESS CONFERENCE 

WOMEN IN BUSINESS

inline-title

Women make up almost 52% of all professional jobs in the United States, yet only 14.6 percent of executive officers, 8.1% of top earners, and 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are women. Although women have made significant progress in the business world, we are nowhere near having a true balance between men and women. Business Today’s Women in Business Conference aims to provide female students from all backgrounds with the cost-free opportunity to attend a mentorship-focused conference that helps to develop an understanding of what challenges women face in the business world and how to overcome them. The 2016 Women in Business Conference will take place in New York City on October 8th and 9th. Business Today will cover all student expenses, including airfare and meals.

WHO WE ARE?

Business Today is a student-run non-profit organization founded by three Princeton undergraduates in 1968 with the mission of bridging the gap between students and business leaders across the globe while prioritizing equal access and opportunity.  After nearly 50 years, over 100 magazines, and more than 50 conferences, Business Today continues to be at the forefront of student-executive engagement.

WHAT WE DO?

In addition to the Women in Business Conference, Business Today also organizes two other annual conferences in New York: the Start @ a Startup Conference, co-sponsored by Sequoia Capital, and the International Conference.  In addition to these conferences, Business Today also publishes the most widely distributed undergraduate publication in the country, as well as its online counterpart, and hosts a Seminar Series bringing leading speakers to Princeton’s campus.
