Manchester Women in Business Society

The University of Manchester Women in Business Society is a student-led society with the goal to empower and inspire women and gender non-conforming individuals within all fields of business. Our society is open to students from all degree backgrounds. 
Inclusivity and empowerment are at the core of our values. That is why we drive forward a supportive network which leverages and enhances talent to excel on both professional and personal levels in the industry.
Through partnerships with both start-ups and corporate giants, the society organises careers and social networking events for its members and hosts inspiring talks from expert speakers trailblazing a path for women in the business industry.
