Registration is open for a new Krannert business camp for young girls in high school
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Jane Brock-Wilson Women in Management Center will welcome approximately 30 high school students July 8 to Purdue University for the Emerging Leaders Retreat, a four-day residential camp designed to empower young girls and to introduce them to careers in business through hands-on learning activities.
Faculty members from the Krannert School of Management will lead interactive workshops covering key business topics. In addition, participants will participate in role-plays designed to enhance confidence and to help them navigate some gender challenges often experienced by young women. The participants will interact with college students, faculty, alumni and young professionals.
