Last week‘s “Warm Up With Wine” event marked the kick-off for UIC Liautaud’s newest org on campus: the Liautaud Women’s Network!
“Warm Up With Wine” was a wine tasting at Gentile’s wine shop where students had the opportunity to meet fellow Liautaud women while sampling a flight of wine. The night involved a little networking, but for the most part, the conversations were kept light with talks about wine & cheese, and plans for future LWN events!
LWN was co-founded by Michelle Plasz, Danielle Seger, Lauren Van Damme, and myself last semester. The organization aims to connect women pursuing graduate studies at UIC Liautaud and engage them in an ongoing dialogue about the unique challenges and opportunities facing women in business in the 21st century. This organization is open to all students, but most events will focus on how we can support Liautaud women throughout their careers.
Thank you to everyone who was able to make it!
