All Women, All Business

All Women, All Business

Prior to 2019, West Virginia University was the only Big 12 school without a student organization dedicated to women in business. That fall semester, Deanna Crumm – now a marketing and organizational leadership senior – and other young women in the Chambers College began the University’s first Women in Business student organization to foster a supportive community of women and equip them with the knowledge, skills and network to succeed and follow their passions. 

Today, the organization has more than 60 members.

“My favorite part of WiB is seeing those around me transform into confident, professional women who are comfortable with owning who they are and who lift up those around them,” Crumm said.

WiB focuses on professional development through female faculty and local female business owner panels, employer guest speakers, networking events, salary negotiation workshops and more. The group also pairs that with social and community service opportunities.
