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.
The MIT Sloan School Management welcomed first round adMITs of the Class of 2015 to campus this February 21-23. A number of events allowed the prospective students to get a feel for the community and learn about opportunities that would be available to them at Sloan.
During adMIT weekend, the Sloan Women in Management club partnered with the Admissions Office to host a breakfast introducing the organization. Current students from the classes of 2013 and 2014 also attended to meet the adMITs and answer questions about life at Sloan, both from a professional and personal perspective. Maura Herson, Director of the MBA Program spoke about the valuable contributions that women have made to the Sloan ecosystem, and the influential role that SWIM has played in supporting that work.
SWIM is excited to meet the second round of admitted students during adMIT weekend II, April 18-20. Round II adMITs are invited to attend the annual SWIM celebration brunch that will be held on April 20 at the Liberty Hotel. RSVP information will be provided by the Admissions Office directly. If prospective or admitted students have any questions, please feel free to contact the SWIM Co-VPs of Admissions, Whitney Scully (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Laura Numair (email@example.com) or the Admissions Office.
