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.
