AWIB'S activities

Recruiting the Next Generation of Women Leaders at Fuqua

We host an annual Weekend for Women for prospective students, as well as create Women's programming during admitted students Blue Devil Weekend.

Developing a Community for Women within Fuqua

We connect students through creating programming such as "Dinner with Six Strangers" to provide opportunities for women to build ties with each other.

We find fun and unique ways to stay healthy and engage with our community by planning events like "Goat Yoga at Hux Family Farm" and "Sync Studio Spin Class."

We consistently have a full calendar of events in collaboration with employers searching for female talent. We connect women at Fuqua with recruiters who support female talent.

Leading Conversations in the Fuqua Community about Women in Business
