Rutgers Business School’s Center for Women in Business empowers students and alumni

The Center for Women in Business aims to address the challenges women face in their professional advancement.

Support the Center

Your donations help us to create programming and scholarships that will open doors for women leaders in business.

Programs and Offerings

The Center's programmatic offerings are designed to provide RBS students and alumnae access, opportunities, and education that will empower them with the confidence and skills necessary for them to advance as women in business.

As the Center continues to grow, we invite and encourage our corporate partners and alumni to connect with us to develop and enhance these initiatives.

Leadership Roundtables

Small cohorts of students learn leadership lessons in a roundtable setting from senior women in industry.

Peer Networking Groups

Peer networking cohorts for early-career alumnae to discuss gender-based leadership challenges and hold each other accountable for personal goal setting.


Skills-based workshops on topics relevant to building confidence in women such as salary negotiation, executive presence, etc.

Student Case Competition

A one-day case competition focusing on a specific topic and is groundbreaking in nature due to its requirement of a women majority team.

Women Focused Mentorship

The goal is to develop a new mentoring program with objectives related to women's leadership development for target groups, such as 1st generation female college students. We also plan to increase the representation of women mentors in the RBS mentor pool.

Scholarship Programs

By providing scholarships we are working to remove barriers for female students by enabling financial access to education, as well as financial support for deserving students to attend educational events that support their learning and growth.

Gender-Focused Research

The Center will facilitate collaboration and the exchange of research ideas between industry and academia through seminars, conferences, workshops and joint research projects that relate to gender in the workplace. Additionally, it will partner with think tanks who do pioneering research in the area of women’s business leadership.

Speaker Series

The Center will partner with the Office of Development to expand the speaker series by inviting high profile women executives to participate. The Center will host an informal networking session after.

Lifetime Learning Opportunities

The Center will partner with RBS Executive Education to aid in content development for new Certificate programs and mini-MBA courses targeted toward women in leadership roles.


Partner with Institute for Women's Leadership (IWL) fellow members and other women advocacy groups to advocate for increased representation of women in traditionally male-dominated fields, overall advocacy to close the gender wage gap, and to bring any concerns of RBS women (faculty, staff, alumnae, and students) to the attention of the RBS Dean.
