IE would like to thank, honor and acknowledge women all over the world in observance of International Women’s Day. As an institution, we are committed to diversity and supporting women from all over the globe. IE has launched #IEWomen, a strategic and multidisciplinary initiative that aims to solidify our pledge to supporting women. This includes the creation of an IE Women Website and blog and a special fund for scholarships with an endowment of 6 million euros.
IE is a sponsor school for the Forte Foundation, a non profit organization that focuses on promoting women in business. They do this by creating a network of top companies, business schools and a strong community of successful women. IE attends these women focused events that take place throughout the year across North America. This March, IE will attend Forte’s College Fast Track to Finance Conference in New York.
Our IE Women In Business Club is extremely active and is a network for IE students and alumni who are interested in promoting gender equality in business. The group’s mission is to provide an open environment and resources for networking, to explore and promote gender equality, and to provide education and tools to address gender issues in professional settings.
IE is proud to recognize the overwhelming achievements our female faculty, staff, students and alumni have accomplished worldwide. Today and everyday we are proud to celebrate and honor #IEWomen.
