Our annual student-led Empowerment Day conference enriches and inspires collegiate women pursuing careers in business while providing them with an exclusive opportunity to network with successful business leaders. 

Empowerment Day is not only beneficial for current Lindner students, but high school seniors as well. The event has historically been influential in helping students finalize their decision to come to Lindner.

Our female students connect with the business community in a big way. Because of our strong network of alumni and recruiters at Fortune 500 companies and emerging startups, students experience the business world up close. Corporate speakers, company visits with CEOs and weekly coffee shop meetings with business leaders are the norm. The organization connects students with top women leaders at world-leading companies such as Procter & Gamble, Deloitte, PNC and KPMG.

Member Spotlight

"I currently work for Grey Midwest, a WPP Agency, here in Cincinnati. I joined the strategy team during the summer of 2018 after spending some time in San Francisco with Universe, a division of Ticketmaster and Live Nation Entertainment. My day-to-day consists of collaborating cross-functionally with our tech, creative, and insights teams to help craft and execute digital strategies for a number of brands both large and small.

"I was a member of LWiB throughout my entire undergraduate career at UC and am so grateful to have been a part of the organization. When I first joined, a typical weekly meeting hosted about 15-20 women, and from there it grew exponentially. Thanks to LWiB, I was able to obtain my first internship at a local women's business accelerator, which ultimately led me to discover my passion for marketing.

"There is so much value in being able to surround yourself with a group of women can uplift you and help you grow, especially during some of the most formative years of life. I can't wait to see this incredible organization continue to empower an incredible, intelligent, diverse group of women and future leaders."
