“Now in its tenth year, EWG has established itself as a forum and powerhouse for alumnae to network, exchange ideas and equip themselves to grow professionally and personally,” according to Barbara Marxer, President.
In celebration of this year’s 10th anniversary, EWG is planning a series of special events, programs, and exhibits that explore the past, present, and future of women in leadership in business and civic life. Next month EWG is the spotlight of the 2013 Goizueta Alumni Awards, which is an event recognizing exceptional alumni who have made outstanding contributions to the Business School and/or Emory University.
EWG, with volunteer-led committees, orchestrates educational programs, after-hours networking and philanthropic activities, which offer an exceptional platform for executive women to interact. In November, its sold-out annual Leadership Conference reached national stature with speakers who rank among the most successful women in business, including, Cathie Black, former Chairman and President of Hearst Magazines, and Shelly Lazarus, chairman emeritus, Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide.
EWG is currently in the midst of an endowment campaign to raise $100,000 for an annual $5000 scholarship for a deserving Executive MBA student. With support from alumnae and sponsors, they are 70% toward achieving their goal.
The mission of the Executive Women of Goizueta (EWG) is to provide a forum for Goizueta women to be successful leaders in their lives, careers and communities. To support this mission, EWG hosts and sponsors a variety of events including discussion forums, an annual conference, and breakfast meetings with industry business leaders. The Executive Women of Goizueta was founded in 2003 by students Sara O’Brien and Kara Kaminsky, and other supporters who identified a need for business and networking events geared specifically to executive women.
