The Women in Business Association is a new club at Boise State focused on connecting women from the College of Business and Economics (COBE) in a casual and fun way, according to Danielle Doerflin, a senior finance and business administration major and one of the club’s three founders. Co-founder Kennedy Sandau, a senior international business major said they wanted to make a place where women can discover what they can do after they graduate and meet other women business owners. Julia Trompke, a senior marketing major and co-founder, wanted to create a culture of women who could come together and collaborate.
“We want to empower women who want to come together, though anyone is welcome to join,” Trompke said. “We are all-inclusive.”
The Women In Business Association is hosting a panel on Oct. 15 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with guest speakers Maggie and Caitie Sfingi from the women-owned Boise business, Merakite. Participants are encouraged to submit questions for the panel ahead of time and can register on the association’s Boise State Engage site.
