President’s Welcome

Welcome to Durham University Women in Business (DUWIB)!

Founded in 2010, Durham University Women in Business (DUWIB) is a relatively young society at Durham University. However, since its inception just under 10 years ago, we have grown into the largest female-oriented business society in the UK and have been enormously successful in educating our members about the opportunities that are available to them across a range of industries. With the support of our sponsors, we host a series of events for our members throughout the year that provide insight into our sponsor firms (which include organisations from the financial services, marketing, recruitment, law and consultancy industries amongst others), skills and CV development workshops, networking opportunities, and job opportunity advertisement.

Throughout the past nine years we have had over 7,250 members and: 
– an Alumni network of 270+
– Hosted 200+ previous events
– 16 firms sponsoring DUWIB
РOver 1,300 mailing list subscribers 
– 2,000 attendees at our previous networking event

Our aim

Some students may know exactly what career they aspire to have while others may be exploring a variety of options. This year in addition to hosting sponsor events we aim to focus on topical, cross-industry business issues such as leadership and confidence in the workplace, the importance of networking, tips on investing, CV/Cover letter clinics, and more.

We hope to continue to build a network of hard-working, ambitious students helping each other to navigate internship and job searches, applications and interviews.

To keep up to date with our activities, follow us on social media activities, follow us on social media and join our mailing list.

Students and potential sponsors with any queries or suggestions can get in touch with us at women.inbusiness@durham.ac.uk or send a message to our Facebook page.

Co-Presidents,

Keerat Thiara and Eve Howarth
