2015 – Women in Business Annual Conference

Georgetown’s Annual Conference for Women in Business entitled, “Beyond Business: Female Leadership from the Boardroom to the Capitol, and Everywhere In Between” took place on November 6, 2015. In an age wherein “all business is global”; wherein Democratic and Republican frontrunners alike come to the Presidential candidate pool from strong business backgrounds; wherein members of the millennial generation will switch careers an average of seven times in their working lives; how can we talk about women in business without exploring the challenges and opportunities that working women face everywhere, from the private sector to the public sector, the community, and in the home?


Looking at the new and evolving face of female leadership in the US and abroad, this year’s Graduate Women in Business (GWiB) Conference at Georgetown University explored questions of where women have been able to redefine power, when the strongest career path is the least clear-cut, and where and why the gender gap persists.
