Networking is a nearly everyday experience for us MBA students. From in-class speakers to alumni events to mingling with our peers, networking opportunities abound.
Unlike other networking events, however, the Women’s Tech Council Speed Networking event on Oct. 21 offered a unique experience to interface with five inspiring female business leaders from around the Salt Lake valley.
The Women’s Tech Council is a nonprofit community organization that seeks to empower women in technology roles and technology companies through mentoring, networking and visibility. For the past three years, the group has participated in a speed-networking event at the Eccles School. The event was sponsored by Women in Business, a club that aims to engage, develop and support women in the Eccles School of Business through education, connection, and empowerment.
