14th Annual Carolina Women in Business (CWIB) conference

October 25, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

$25 – $35

“Time to R(ally)” is the theme of this year’s Carolina Women in Business (CWIB) conference. It celebrates ally-ship as the force behind professionals finding continued inspiration, support and success both at home and in the workplace. As such, all are encouraged to attend the conference – from UNC students, faculty and staff to business professionals from the Triangle and beyond.

“We all encounter certain people – allies – throughout life who both champion our success and push us to become our best selves,” said Harmonie Jacobson (MBA ‘20), CWIB president. “The conference is all about rallying more people around the mindset that the larger the ally network, the better off we all become.”

Opening and closing remarks will be given by:

  • Joan Kuhl, founder of Why Millennials Matter, a champion for girls’ leadership and advancing women in the workforce, and author of “Dig Your Heels In: Navigate Corporate BS and Build the Company You Deserve”
  • Jessica McDonald, forward on the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup U.S. Women’s National Soccer championship team and the Carolina Courage of the National Women’s Soccer League, and a UNC alumna who played two seasons for the Tar Heels in 2008 and 2009

An impressive lineup of speakers from across the U.S. representing a broad range of industry and job function expertise will address career and professional growth-specific topics, including:

  • Allies Unite! From Diversity to Parenthood and Everything in Between: How to Both Start the Tough Conversations and Drive Change Around You
