The leadership team is responsible for putting on the annual event, Women, Wine & Wisdom, which is a Ted Talk-style speaker series that typically takes place in the fall (during the 2020-2021 school year, this event will take place during the spring). Over the last couple years, more than 100 people have attended annually, so this is a large and well-received event! Reach out to the board to get involved, work closely and form relationships with other Part-Time MBA students, help plan this year’s Women, Wine & Wisdom, and coordinate additional events throughout the school year.
