The daylong event includes keynote speakers, WIBTalks (modeled after TEDTalks), and panel discussions. This year, the theme for the event is confidence.

Women in Business builds a network with the goal of creating a world with more women leaders. We believe that this event will provide a source of inspiration, education, and opportunities for both men and women. We are bringing in speakers from around the country, alumni, and company recruiters who will share their experiences and help Purdue students grow professionally and feel confident to seek out their career aspirations.
