Female business students start their SBA journey with service, social experiences

By Integrated Learning-Living Communities

Women’s Business Leadership (WBL) is a key part of the University of Dayton School of Business Administration Program, allowing access to professional development and social and service opportunities tailored to first-year women business students.  

The mentorship, service and networking opportunities provide a way for female freshmen to start their journey with the SBA on the right path, unlocking opportunities to ask for advice and guidance in various situations regarding life as a woman in business.

Students in the program started the semester strong by entering a mentorship alongside prominent female leaders from The Quotient, a local female-led company focused on the empowerment of others and advocacy for change.

The Quotient collaborated with the Integrated Learning and Living Communities (ILLC) to enhance students’ self-awareness and focus on gaining personal confidence. As an additional part of the mentorship, students took part in a book club, reading Brenè Brown's "Dare to Lead, a book about vulnerability and finding inner courage.

Since service is an integral part of a University of Dayton education and Marianist values, the students in the Women’s Business Leadership ILLC program gave back to the community by volunteering with the Tour De Gem, The Wright Brothers 2022 Cycling Classic, a fundraising cycling event for local nonprofits to raise money and bring awareness to their important missions.

As part of enriching their professional development, students also attended the 2022 Women in Business Networking Event (WIBN), where they listened to local female leaders speak about important business topics. Participants mingled with prominent local leaders to get a jumpstart on developing effective business networks.

Students finished off the semester by attending a holiday social event alongside their mentors. Hosted at a local country club, the event focused on enhancing students’ business etiquette and social skills, while enjoying a festive dinner.
