Welcome to the UCWBG Website!
Alumni roundtables, career conferences, websites, webinars, leadership circles, linking alums to nonprofit boards, women's conferences, mothers' groups, newsletters and emails. What do these all have in common? They are all UCWBG innovations.
We value our community of women who have all navigated an extraordinary education at an extraordinary institution. After 35 years as a Chicago Booth alumnae group, including more than 12 years as a 501(c)(3) organization, UCWBG is currently restructuring. While we rethink our future and future activities, memberships will not be available. However, we will continue to update the website with opportunities that we think are of interest to our community. So stop by our website regularly to see our latest news.
Tue, Jan 31 Own It: The Power of Women at Work
In her new book, Own It, Sallie Krawcheck draws on her experiences at the highest levels of business, both as one of the lone women at the top rungs of the biggest boy’s club in the world, and as an entrepreneur, to show how women can tap into this growing power to elevate their careers. Women have the opportunity to play a more significant role than they know in shaping their companies into places they want to work – or leave to start their own: by initiating the “courageous conversations” about true flexibility and diversity in the workplace, forging non-traditional career paths, and more.
