How do I become a member?
Requirements to become an inducted member can be found under the “Membership” tab of our website. It's refreshed every semester.
How do I join a committee?
At the end of our General Interest Meetings, we will share an interest form that asks what committees you are interested in. From there, you will be sent applications from each respective committee VP. After VPs review applications, they will send out interview invitations for respective positions.
Are there any committees open?
All committee positions are currently open. We won’t begin staffing committees until after our General Interest Meetings, so around the second week of September. I suggest visiting our website to learn more about all of our committees, and attending a General Interest Meeting to learn more about exactly what positions are available.
Are events in-person or online?
Most events are in person now and hosted in our club room or on the second floor of the Newman Vertical Campus. Some can still be hosted online over Zoom if the host VP chooses to do so. Check flyer information for the location of each event.
When are events normally held?
All of our events are held during club hours (12:30 pm - 2:30 pm) or in the evenings (6 - 8pm) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We occasionally have events in the evening accommodate the schedules of invited professionals and alumnae.
Where can I be up to date of all WIB events?
The best way to keep up to date with all things WIB is to follow us on Instagram @baruchwib and to subscribe to our newsletter!
What are the requirements to become a board member?
To run for a VP position, you must be at least a half year inducted member. To run for an E Board position, you must be a full year inducted member.
What can I gain from this experience?
Our main goal within WIB is to grow members both personally and professionally. This is done through events focused on member development, professional events hosted with companies such as Deloitte, Bloomberg, etc., and through opportunities to join committees that offer more hand on experience such as Marketing and Public Relations.
Does WIB allow members to network with women in the finance industry?
WIB offers networking opportunities with companies from multiple industries, including finance, accounting, and computer information systems.
How can I get in contact with different members?
On our Instagram, we have posted all of our board members in our “Meet the Board” series, I suggest giving us a follow on our personal instagrams and saying hello! Throughout the semester, you’ll have the opportunity to meet new members at events and at mixers hosted by the board.
