    GWIB Logo

    The Graduate Women in Business (GWIB) is an organization that provides a forum for students, alumnae, faculty and female professionals to discuss the issues and challenges women face in their careers and offers activities that build awareness of women in leadership positions. GWIB sponsors social and professional activities as well as providing volunteer opportunities within the community.

    Members of GWIB recently hosted a webinar where they shared their experiences at Darden and what their club brings to the Darden community.

    Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.

    Graduate Women in Business (GWIB) has six primary goals:

    • Accelerate the individual, interpersonal, and community development for women at Darden via high impact events such as our annual GWIB conference. 
    • Develop an authentic & connected community by leveraging key relationships to create a sense of belonging for women at Darden.
    • Drive broader community learning around issues of Gender Equity while celebrating the role of women at Darden and in the business community.
    • Celebrate the diversity of our community by hosting events and programs that highlight the intersectionality of women at Darden. 
    • Promote an inclusive classroom & academic experience. 
    • Engage others in the happenings of women at Darden including male allies, prospective students & the broader Charlottesville community. 

      Benefits of GWIB include support, leadership, mentorship, career development, and community involvement.
