Thanks to our sponsors!


Pink and Denim Day

Pink and Denim Day (PDD) is one of WIB’s largest fundraising events of the fall semester, which aims to raise awareness and proceeds for the American Breast Cancer Society’s: Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Although the event typically takes place during the fall semester, this year it is being held during the spring semester. Typically, there are auctions from small businesses and fun activities such as Pie the President held in on the second floor of the NVC. This event aims to educate students about Breast Cancer by bringing in guest speakers, all while raising money to support the cause and having a great time!


Pearls of Wisdom Conference

The Pearls of Wisdom Leadership Conference (POW) is an annually held professional and fundraising event by Women In Business. Pearls of Wisdom is an award-winning event that has been recognized by the Baruch student body as its “Best Professional Event” for four consecutive years. Over 100 professional guests and Baruch students, including men and women, are in attendance each year. In 2024, Pearls of Wisdom will be held for the 18th year. In tradition with previous years, all proceeds raised from the Conference will be donated to a dedicated cause.

        The Conference brings together over 20 phenomenal female professionals to engage in compelling conversations with students while sharing their knowledge, experiences, and best career advice. In connecting our undergraduate guests with these powerful, successful, and inspirational female leaders, we hope that students will be empowered by and be able to utilize the guidance, or “pearls of wisdom,” received while embarking on their own journeys toward a professional career and beyond.

Resilient, Independent, Strong, Empowered

R.I.S.E is WIB’s large-scale fundraiser which raises awareness and proceeds for an organization that empowers women. R.I.S.E stands for Resilient, Independent, Strong, and Empowered, which highlights the characteristics of all women. The event features between 10 - 15 small businesses who graciously donate their items to be auctioned off during the event. The small business owners also participated in a series of exciting minute-to-win-it style challenges. During the two-hour event in the Fall of 2021, over $1100 was donated to the organization called Women Beyond Survival.


Style Your Success Fashion Show

Style Your Success (SYS) is an award-winning annual charity fashion show hosted by Women in Business. It has won Best Social Event for two consecutive years during the annual Bernies award show hosted by the Baruch College Undergraduate Student Government. We host an audience ranging from 100 to 200 people virtually and in-person, respectfully. Guests made up of Baruch students, faculty and others are treated to 4 segments ranging from Business Professional to Day to Night outfits, providing them with a sense of what attire is appropriate for different business settings. Audiences are also treated to other elements of SYS including raffles, auctions and performances. All of the proceeds from this event are donated to the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life with the hopes of helping researchers find a cure for cancer and provide resources for those suffering from cancer. SYS was held for its 14th year in 2022.
