Connect...Share...Aspire!  

AWB is a society where girl bosses come together to build networks with industry-leading businesses and most importantly lasting friendships with like-minded females of the future! 

Whether you are going to be taking up a Year in Industry or a Graduate role, you will be wondering what lies ahead of you in the world of work. What do you expect? What will the job be like? How do you overcome the challenges women face in business today? 

  We provide a platform to bring together and empower Aston students, equipping you with the tools, networks and insights to get ahead. Our events will give you the opportunity to: 

  • Connect with experienced professionals in today’s leading businesses. 

  • Share career journeys, industry knowledge and top tips. 

  • Aspire to a successful future.

History

Aston Women in Business was founded in 2014 by Aston Student Sharena Sivlal with the aim of raising awareness about the challenges we as women face in the professional world, and also to allow women at Aston to socialise and build networks - not only with other students but also with potential businesses and future employers.
