Members from Women In Business student organization at UNI had the opportunity to travel to Des Moines to attend the Central Iowa Conference as part of the Iowa Women Lead Change (IWLC) initiative. IWLC is Iowa's leading leadership organization for women, offering comprehensive leadership resources including events featuring prominent speakers, frequent networking opportunities and other important services to advance womens leadership in all aspects of their lives.

UNIBusiness students who attended the student track portion of the Central Iowa Conference were Betsy Davis (Supply Chain Management), Allison Noggle (Marketing & Finance), Megan Zwaschka (Supply Chain & Management), Hailey Popp (Supply Chain & Management), Emily Janett (Accounting & Economics), and Vanessa Wessels (Accounting & Finance). The Student Trak program is designed to assist aspiring young women in learning more about women in leadership and career preparation. As a conference attendee, these students now have access to locally and nationally known women leaders with invaluable expertise and an opportunity to network with hundreds of professionals within their own community.

"This conference was really important to me to be able to see how successful women can be in the business world. As a freshman it was essential to be able to see that this was something I wanted to do and see that I am on the right path. I think the conference gave me a new perspective on the business world and pushes me to want to be successful," said Noggle. Popp added, "I learned many things about what employers look for when hiring, how to find the right mentor for my career, and how to be confident as a women pursuing a career. The skills that I have learned while attending this conference helped me understand the importance of not only being involved, but becoming a leader. These are skills that I will be able to carry with me throughout the rest of my career."

The Dean‘s Fund for Excellence is responsible for making trips like this possible and Megan Zwaschka (Supply Chain & Management) contributes the fund to her success at UNI. "The Dean's fund affected my experience because it made it so easy and attainable to go to the conference. As a college student we are always thinking about how much things are going to cost and if we can afford it. The Dean's Fund has made it easy to attend this conference that really helped me develop important skills for my future."

UNIBusiness thanks the countless donors who contribute to the Dean‘s Fund for Excellence that makes real-world experiences like the Central Iowa Conference possible.
