Student at 2018 Women of UNIBusiness Hall of Fame

After a successful inaugural event in 2018, UNI Women in Business is proud to announce its second-annual 2019 Women of UNIBusiness Hall of Fame ceremony. The celebration will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 26 at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center at the University of Northern Iowa.

Nine women (see list below) will be recognized for their achievements and contributions in the field of business, joining the nine women who were inducted in 2018. The first few classes of the hall of fame are highlighting women who put the initial cracks in the glass ceiling.

Inductees and their families will enjoy the luncheon, brunch social and a golf cart tour of campus on the day of the event while interacting with UNIBusiness students and faculty. At the ceremony, the women will be honored, introduced and deliver their own story to perhaps inspire the many aspiring business professionals in attendance.

UNI Women in Business is a student-run organization striving to create a community within UNIBusiness that fosters development and allows students to expand their professional experiences. The UNIBusiness Hall of Fame ceremony is an extension of the organization’s mission to provide a link between current UNI students and business role models.
