Join us for the third annual GW Women in Business (GWWIB) Spring Conference on Saturday, April 21, 2012, in Duques and Funger Halls at The George Washington University.
With an expected attendance of more than 200 college students and young professionals, this year's GWWIB Spring Conference is themed "Envision. Engage. Execute. A Blueprint for Success." Keynote speakers include:
- Princess Yasmine Pahlavi, Founder, The Foundation for the Children of Iran;
- Bobbie Lloyd, President and Chief Baking Officer, Magnolia Bakery; and
- Alexis Maybank, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Gilt Groupe.
The conference will feature ten industry-focused panel discussions with thought leaders in finance, consulting, marketing and advertising, sports management, food and restaurants, fashion, event planning, technology, law and policy, and media. Following an afternoon networking luncheon with notable Washington bloggers, attendees will participate in personal and career development workshops on topics such as mentorship, college entrepreneurship, social media, personal branding, diversity, business style, philanthropy, and more.
The conference is open to women and men of all ages. Tickets must be purchased in advance and include conference admission, breakfast, lunch, and dessert, a conference "swag" bag, and a signed copy of By Invitation Only, a new book by Gilt Groupe founders Alexis Maybank and Alexandra Wilkis Wilson.
