About UWiB:

The Undergraduate Women in Business (UWiB) is a non-profit, student organization at the Foster School of Business. UWiB was founded in 2005 with the mission of connecting and preparing the next generation of female business leaders. UWiB strives to advance women's continued progress through multiple career opportunities, business networking communities, and educational workshops. UWiB seeks to promote greater awareness and understanding of ongoing issues and challenges that women presently face in business while providing professional relationships with female business leaders for the undergraduate community.

Why I Joined:

I've discovered my passion for business when I started the Button-Maker Club and other initiatives at Bellevue College. These entrepreneurial activities and experiences led to my interest in marketing, management, and entrepreneurship. I wanted to learn more about the business industry as well as to connect with diverse women leaders and their roles in business.

Because of UWiB, I met the First Vietnamese Woman to Be Crowned Mrs. World

Jennifer Le was raised in Seattle, and won her first crown during her undergraduate year at the University of Washington. She earned a degree in business administration and is now working in the tech industry.

Le also started an organization with a scholarship program that offers financial assistance for women in underserved areas.

I look up to her as my role model.

Her story and experiences have inspired me to create projects to impact others. As an Asian-American women leader of color, I want to use my voice to empower marginalized individuals and communities through creative innovation and community building.

At UWiB, I visited Google


By connecting with the Recruiter at Google, I learned about tips to enter the real world. I also learned about the challenges and opportunities that women face in the workforce, which led to my interest in bridging the gap for achieving gender equality and balance. Most leadership positions in business or tech are occupied by men. As an Asian-American businesswoman, I want to represent myself and bring a diversity of perspectives through inclusivity, community, and innovation.

UWiB is always providing students the opportunities to explore different fields of business through professional development and career opportunities. In February 2020, we had the opportunity to visit the software company, Google.

At these events, we've observed the working environment, asked questions to a panel of employees, and experience what a day is like at the company. It was AWE-MAZING! I fell in love with Google! I want to work here someday! I'm so blown away by the environment that they've created for their employees.
