Speaker Series

SWIM 
hosts 
approximately 8 speakers per year to 
give
 current 
students 
the 
opportunity 
to
hear 
women 
leaders 
share 
their
 perspective
 on 
relevant 
business
 topics. 

In 
the 
past, 
these 
topics
 have 
ranged 
from 
industry 
focused 
career
 advice 
to
 the
 role
 of 
ethics
 in
 today’s 
environment.
 These 
are 
predominantly
 hour‐long 
lunch
 events
 held
 on
 campus.

SWIM
 is 
seeking 
both 
prominent 
women 
business 
leaders 
to 
feature 
at 
these 
events 
as
well
 as
