Society of Women Leaders at Stanford


During the first weekend of April, we attended the inaugural Society of Women Leaders retreat at Stanford University. The purpose of this organization, co-founded by Stanford and Harvard Women in Businesses, is to create a network of the top women leaders of the world's elite universities in order to share experiences and help with WIB organizational development. At the retreat, we gained valuable insight into what it means to work in the world famous Silicon Valley by engaging in once-in-a-lifetime experiences, including dinner with executives at Canvas Ventures, a technology-driven venture capital firm, and a panel and tour at the headquarters of Facebook, one of the most influential businesses in the world.
