Message from Our President
Dear fellow women in business,
It is with great humility and honor that I have the pleasure of assuming the role of President of Women in Business at UCSD. I am deeply grateful for all of my predecessors and fellow members, who together built this outstanding support system for an underrepresented and underestimated group of people.
In the 2022-2023 academic year, I am joined by my wonderful executive team, including Cailin Pullan, our EVP, and 16 brilliant execs across 5 committees, the largest number of executives we've had ... ever. Through our extensive board, we at WIB will build upon the organization's robust foundation to further our ability to catalyze your career readiness. I look forward to seeing how you all propel forward in your professional lives - there are many exciting projects we're working on and events we will host, and I cannot wait for you all to experience it.
Lastly, I wanted to thank you for being a part of WIB. It is because of you that we are able to sustain this community - as a beacon of light amidst the storm of wondering and worrying about life after graduation. I am confident that the connections you build while you're here will last for life, and that you can rely on us even after you are no longer a student. Once a wibbie, always a wibbie!
At your service,
"There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish."
