Binghamton Women in Business (BWiB) is a female-oriented business organization seeking to empower females at Binghamton University and serving as a collective voice for the female community in the professional world. We want to instill the confidence and drive in females to pursue challenges and to enrich and diversify the workplace. We believe that it is crucial to facilitate communication among females to foster leadership and success. Throughout the semester we host networking events, professional workshops, membership events and philanthropic endeavors.
The Four Pillars of Women in Business
Membership in Women in Business offers over 30 leadership opportunities through our implementation of subcommittees under the Executive Board. Our unique leadership structure allows members to gain real world leadership experience and development countless transferable skills as they move up in the Executive Board over time.
Women in Business strives to develop its members professionally, personally, and academically through a number of initiatives. Each semester BWiB hosts countless professional development workshops to improve members’ résumé writing, interviewing, and networking skills. The organization strives to provide mentorship to its members through its annual mentorship program.
Women in Business is unique in that community service is an important part of its mission. BWiB encourages members to give back to the local community of Binghamton through several community service and philanthropy events throughout the year.
Women in Business strives to foster a tight-knit community in order to create a group of women who support one another in their professional and personal endeavors. The relationships created through Women in Business always extend past graduation, building lasting friendships and an expanded network.
Binghamton’s Women in Business (BWiB) was founded by an undergraduate student, Tiffany Choi along with the five other founding members, Victoria Eng, Meng Zhu, Cathleen Wang, Kaitlin Roffe, and Jessica Yee, on April 14, 2011. Having attended a women’s diversity event in her senior year of high school, Choi was encouraged to join a student organization at her university that inspires and strengthens women’s leadership. However, after arriving at Binghamton University, she found that there was a lack of such an organization, motivating Choi, along with her fellow founders, to create Women in Business.
