Who We Are


Mission: Whitman Women in Business aims to engage the Syracuse community in a dialogue on women’s involvement in business and leadership. The organization seeks to foster students’ involvement in the Whitman and global business community and the development of business leaders.

The objective of Whitman Women in Business is to mentor all students and promote women’s advancement in the corporate world through focused efforts towards social and economic empowerment, professional growth, and a strong network of women business leaders.

As we work with each other through various club activities, we all mutually benefit and become better professionals. From our events, we learn about achieving work-life balance, developing our soft skills, and develop professionally and individually through extracurricular activities such as New York Business trips.  These trips allows us to gain exposure to many industries, professionals, and companies that will help us develop personal and professional skills. These business trips are an effective way to network with women professionals who share our ideas and goals.

The Club maintains its holistic goal of strengthening the Whitman community. We hold a number of fundraisers every year, and the proceeds of these events go towards meeting the needs of Whitman Women in Business and the Whitman community.

Whitman Women in Business also seeks to forge relationships with female business leaders in the Syracuse, NY community. Through partnership, Whitman and the local business landscape can generate greater and more numerous opportunities and connections for our future female business leaders.
