Event Details

The Boston University Chapter of the 85 Broads Network cordially invites you to:

On March 27, 2010, we will be hosting our third annual intercollegiate spring conference, themed "Rising to the Top".  Our conference will be held at the Boston University School of Hospitality, and aims to empower women in all areas of their lives.  

Interact directly with diverse speakers and panelists from a variety of fields including: Marketing, Advertising, Finance, Fashion, Government, Advocacy & Politics, Non-Profit, Consulting, and Entrepreneurship! 

Our speakers have experience working at some of the most internationally recognized firms and institutions including but not limited to: Goldman Sachs, BCG, Hill Holiday, the Bridgespan Group, Proctor & Gamble, State Street, and the National Organization for Women, as well as the founders of 9Tailors, Wanart, LearnVest, and Baking for Good!

Join us as they share their experiences as professionals in diverse and competitive industries and offer advice about what it "takes" to get to where they are today. These women are sure to inspire and support you as you embark on your journey up your career ladder.

Network and make personal connections with some of the most successful women in the Boston area. With an emphasis on Rising to the Top, we hope this year’s speakers will help you with your personal career exploration.
