Women in isolation won’t be able to
change business education


We all need to be at the table

We want to increase the number of women leaders

in business education, globally.

Women in BizEd (WiBE, pronounced WEE-bee) is a global movement championing women’s leadership at the highest levels of business education. We are a phenomenal network of successful and ambitious women disrupting the landscape of business education leadership.

Representing hundreds of members comprising deans, rectors, associate deans, assistant deans and directors across 18 countries, we believe business leaders can and should be agents for positive change and social good in the world.

WiBE is a leading example of how a market-driven and solutions approach can transform gender and racial equity globally.

Women in BizEd is proudly a woman-owned limited liability company headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, USA.

WiBE Membership is a collaborative and exclusive space for women and our champions in business academia looking to engage with their international peers to pursue the next step of their leadership journey.

From future educators to the top ranks of management, we are here to make you thrive, and to bring global visibility to the incredible work you are doing.

WiBE Membership is designed to engage women across all spectrums, so whether you are AACSB, AMBA, EFMD, AAPBS, CEEMAN or perhaps you are AOM, PRME or GBSN— we cut across all organizations to broaden your global connections.

WiBE is an incredibly supportive, non-judgmental, and an open environment where I feel comfortable authentically sharing whatever is on my mind – work-related or personal. It truly feels like I have a group of like-minded leaders who are making a difference in higher education and I always walk away feeling like I’ve learned something new

About the Founder

20 years, 22 countries, almost 100 business schools

Where were the women?

In the last two decades I’ve worked with almost 100 different business schools in twenty two countries. From writing strategic plans, developing new programs to establishing partnerships, I was exposed to almost every aspect of a business school. 

 Yet everywhere I traveled I discovered the same thing.  We would struggle for gender balance and diversity at every steering committee meeting, conference agenda, or dean’s council. 
When I did have the rare opportunity to work with women at the top levels of leadership I very much enjoyed connecting with these trail blazing, brilliant, clever, rock star, courageous leaders!  For years I have wanted to bring these change makers together to build a powerful and cohesive network.

I invite you to join WiBE membership as we build the pipeline of future leaders in business education.—Lisa Leander, Founder & CEO, Women in Business Education
