“The UofM is lucky to have a business group focused on the advancement and celebration of young women business leaders! During my time as a student member of FWL, I received opportunities to grow as both a business student and woman. These opportunities helped refine my passion for business and gave me various resources for planning my career path. Each meeting is thoughtfully organized with inspiring and intentional speakers who share their thoughts, experiences and even challenges. Now as an alumna, I get the pleasure to attend these meetings and offer my own advice and resources to the next generation of women trailblazers. I am so grateful for this group and the lifelong network it continues to nurture!”

"Fogelman Women in Leadership is a unique opportunity for students to learn from amazing professional leaders in the community. Every workshop has helped me to gain new perspective of the real-world issues and learning from one another was enriching to my personal and professional career.”

The Fogelman Women in Leadership Conference was top-notch. The speakers were authentic and informative, the networking with other leaders was incredibly helpful and the tone of the program was tailored to help students grow. I walked away with fresh energy and insights on my role and how I can help others. I’m proud to be a part of this program and thankful for the support of FCBE for all women students.

As a HR major, I particularly value female leadership development because of the skill gap for women. I enjoyed the connections I made as well as the perspectives I gained from the Fogelman Women in Leadership Program. I hope to be able to continue participating as a FCBE alumna.
