Help Us Develop the Future of UCWBG!
After 35 years as a Chicago Booth alumnae group, including more than 12 years as a 501c3 organization, UCWBG is currently restructuring. Instead of being our own entity, we see more benefit from working more closely with Chicago Booth and the University with its deeper financial resources and more help from volunteers related to programs and marketing.
Help us develop and implement a strategic plan that addresses the growing need for broader partnerships with the professional women at the University of Chicago. Sign up for one of the hour long strategic sessions and join in in the discussion:
Tuesday, May 17, 7:00 pm, Glenview Public Library. Click here to register.
Tuesday, May 24, 7:00 pm, Gleacher Center. Click here to register for this session.
Thank you for your patience during this time.
Leadership Series: Professor Marvin Zonis
On May 18, the Chicago Booth Alumni Club will hold the third event in its Leadership Series. Professor Marvin Zonis will be the speaker. Leadership is ever more talked about as essential for business success. There are ever more publications and ever more ideas about what leadership is like and what it takes to be a leader. Based on his course at Booth, Professor Zonis will argue that leadership’s successful exercise depends on the passion and commitment of the leader and the emotional intelligence that a would be leader can use in interacting with would be followers.

Tips for Finding the Right Non-Profit Board for You
Serving on the board of a non-profit organization is an objective of many people judging by the attendance at UCWBG’s annual meeting last January 29. The Social Enterprise Initiative at Chicago Booth held their second annual OnBoard conference earlier this year where Finding that fit was the subject of a recent session led by two veterans of nonprofit boards. Read the Chicago Booth news article describing the points that were made in the session. They make good sense.
