The Graduate Women’s Council 2020-2021
Our Mission Statement
The Graduate Women’s Council exists to enrich the Beedie experience for all students by offering career development opportunities with a focus on diversity. We aim to develop and sustain a culture of support and encouragement and pledge to work toward a more inclusive and equal society.
Founded in the fall of 2011, the GWC is an elected Beedie graduate student and alumni volunteer-run club committed to greater diversity in leadership in BC. The GWC organizes the following events and activities to achieve their goals:
1. Networking events to bring Beedie graduate students and alumni together
2. Symposiums/speaking events to provide education and experience to the membership
3. Maintenance of a strong network of alumni to support future club members in their career development
4. Consulting services from the membership to the community (start-ups, small businesses)
