Berkeley Women in Business

Berkeley Women in Business (BWIB) empowers the business leaders of tomorrow through leadership development and discourse about gender equity in the workforce. They strive to develop their members into well-rounded individuals with the skills necessary to succeed in their careers. BWIB is open to all students, all majors, and all genders who are in support of women in the workplace.

Dialogues over Dinner

Dialogues over Dinner (DOD) brings together students in the full-time MBA program to discuss diversity-related topics in small group dinners. These informal peer discussions serve as an open space for discussing issues relevant to Haas students, as future business leaders who will lead diverse teams, and offer a meaningful opportunity to engage thoughtfully with classmates, learn from each other’s lived experiences, and deepen relationships.

Gender Equity Initiative

The Gender Equity Initiative (GEI) is a student-led initiative focused on five aspects of gender equity in the Haas community, including FTMBA admissions, academics, culture, and careers.

Race Inclusion Initiative

The Race Inclusion Initiative (RII) is a student run group that seeks to understand and improve the Haas experience for students in the FTMBA program by conducting qualitative and quantitative research on the admissions process, the classroom environment, and student culture as it relates to underrepresented minorities (URM).

Women in Leadership

Women in Leadership (WIL) serves the entire Haas community through a series of professional, educational, and social events designed to enhance the understanding and appreciation of women’s roles in business while equipping WIL members to achieve success.
