YWiB’s university chapters have experienced tremendous growth over the last couple years. YWiB SFU has doubled in size, and with our two new chapters, the expansion is living proof that the connections, workshops, and opportunities that members get at YWiB have been truly valuable, on top of being tons of fun! If you're in university and are interested in making long-term connections, inspiring and being inspired by like-minded, passionate and driven women, join YWiB! As we all know (repeat after me!), "it's not what you know, it's who you know" -- well, YWiB wants to know you!
As of September 2013, we have six Chapters within BC: Vancouver, UBC, UVic, SFU, KPU, and UBCO.
Time to meet your new leaders at KPU and UBCO:
YWiB KPU (Kwantlen Polytechnic University)
Navi Dhillon, President of YWiB KPU, is 21 and a student in BBA Accounting. Navi is a girl who knows what she wants: to become a partner at an accounting firm. She is recruiting the remaining few positions on the exec team, so if you think you're what Navi wants in a team member (a.k.a. you have vision, passion, and a big smile!), get in touch with her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our UBCO Chapter is being led by two co-Presidents: Priya Dhindsa, 21 and an Accounting major, and Jessyca Nielson. Like many of us Vancouverites, Priya is also an active yogi (and secretly wishes Hogwarts were real!). Jessyca is also in the Management program and loves Vancouver's beautiful summers outside!
The YWiB UBCO Membership Coordinator position is still available! If you believe that people achieve more when working together than apart and want to spread this philosophy and get others involved, please email either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: To comply with UBCO’s rules, this chapter is operating under the Management faculty. Unfortunately for now, this means membership and team positions are limited to students within the Management program; however, as with all YWiB chapters, anyone and everyone is welcome to attend events as a non-member!
Register to become a YWiB UBCO member here, and don't forget to spread the word about events and #ywiblove to your friends in other faculties!
We hope you're all easily settling into first semester :) Have a fantastic weekend!
