Hello to our current Exeter students and our 2017/18 Fresher's!
As your President for the upcoming year - I am excited to welcome old and new members back to the XWIB community and to reveal what we have in store. This year will be packed full of academic and non-academic events, trips, joint society socials, dinners and balls.
Myself and my wonderful committee have been working hard throughout the summer to expand our Sponsor base; and are excited to reveal to you all soon, our new 2017/18 Sponsors which we will be working with. With our dedicated Sponsor support, we can provide our members with a year of diverse and rich opportunities, regardless of your course or university year.
I hope XWIB serves as a friendly and welcoming community to you throughout the next year, and gives you the chance to explore your passions - whether these be career or women in the workplace orientated, and allows you to make friends and connections which you can take through university & through life after Exeter. We look forward to meeting you all!
Kayley Rousell (XWIB President) & the XWIB committee
WHO ARE WE AND WHAT CAN WE OFFER?
XWIB is a community of like-minded, ambitious students who are interested in gaining more knowledge about the workplace. In 2017/18 we have around 400 members and hope to see this grow again this year. We aim to provide our members with the opportunity to develop personally and professionally, equipping them with skills to navigate male-dominated environments. We are open to all members of the university, irrespective of your course of study - women in business society isn't just for those who study business/law! Dedicated members of our committee will be working hard to make sure everyone has a place and feels included in XWIB, so whether you're an international student, a humanities student or just want to join to meet new people, XWIB is guaranteed to have something for you. We have lots of academic events planned for this year, as well as some amazing socials lined up for when you need that break from work!
