Sloan Women In Management
Sloan Women in Management (SWIM) works to increase opportunities for all women at MIT Sloan through networking events, speaker series, professional development workshops, mentorship programs, and community-building events. In addition to its year-long programming, SWIM hosts an annual conference where students can dialogue with today's leading women. The organization’s primary goals are to:
- Create an inviting and supportive community for all Sloan women and individuals who identify as women;
- Advance the careers of current MIT Sloan women through relevant programming and connections with MIT and MIT Sloan alumni;
- Work with faculty, administrators, and the greater business community to increase opportunities for women in business; and
- Attract top-talent female students to MIT Sloan.
MIT Sloan attracts students who care about being “in the world, for the world”. SWIM members exemplified this characteristic with a recent toiletries donation to Rosie’s Place, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women located in Boston. SWIM brought toiletries left over from our recent annual celebration of women brunch to share with the women of Rosie’s Place.
As Rosie’s Place states on their website, “Through our drop-in advocacy program we are able to distribute clothing, toiletries, and other items to thousands of poor and homeless women each year. We rely on the generosity of individuals, companies, and organizations to provide these essential items.” SWIM is fortunate enough to partner with many companies throughout the year that sponsor our exciting events. We will continue to distribute left over items from these events to the very deserving women of Rosie’s Place. Please visit http://www.rosiesplace.org/ for more information.
