Women BUILD resumes traditional spring summit
The traditional spring-time summit that celebrates the Women BUILD (Business Undergraduates in Leadership Development) program returned this year after a two-year pause caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
As it has in the past, this year’s summit brought together student members, alumni, faculty, mentors, and corporate sponsors who have enriched one another through relationships formed through the program. The summit was held at Ruth Bader Ginsberg Hall in Newark on April 8.
A panel of speakers delivered one more dose of career and life insights before the close of the academic year, and the student members who will graduate in May were recognized for their accomplishments – leadership, academic success, and new jobs, among them.
Among the speakers was Professor Petra Christmann, who is also Rutgers Business School's vice dean for faculty affairs and research, and Nicolle Pangis, CEO of Ampersand.
“There was a feeling of palpable joy among our students in finally coming together again after the pandemic, and a sense of empowerment knowing that the strong relationships they have forged within this powerful network of women will sustain them into the future,” said Sangeeta Rao, Rutgers Business School’s assistant dean for mentoring programs.
