Victoria Women in Business
The inspiration for Victoria Women in Business came off the back of our founder's year on exchange in Milan, Italy. While studying at one of the best business schools in Europe among exchange students from equally prestigious universities worldwide, she realised Victoria University of Wellington was missing a club. All her peers were members of Women in Business clubs at their home universities. Why not at Victoria University of Wellington?
Upon her return to Wellington and a discussion with her friend (our vice president and member of Victoria alumni), they realised the value of such a club. The girls wanted their peers to feel empowered, knowledgeable, connected and ready for the workplace upon graduation.
Holding networking, speaker and panel events for members and alumni, Victoria Women in Business allows students to meet and greet the inspirational and influential women in the Wellington community. The club is all-inclusive: we invite members from all degree specialties to find out more about the careers and women in their chosen field.
Victoria University of Wellington's Women in Business was founded in April 2017. We've been growing ever since.
