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. With the pandemic hammering universities–and women in particular–I couldn’t wait any longer.  I invite you to join WiBE membership as we build the pipeline of future leaders in business education.
