Hello, Our new President Mandi Bullough (2015-2017) and the Board are emphasizing three themes in WAIB's mission: 1. To promote *networking* among women members of AIB / WAIB using social media, 2. To encourage* gender and general-related research*, and 3. To provide a *mentoring* service. Note that despite its name, WAIB's membership* now includes men, LGBT, and minority groups *who share similar research interests. WAIB is active on *LinkedIn* and *Facebook*. Please visit both using the *search term*: WAIB Women of the Academy of International Business. You can make posts directly on each site without passing through a moderator. Our* LinkedIn page* features articles relevant to gender and gender-related research and discussions between WAIB members. Please do mention this valuable research resource to your friends and colleagues, as well as your students. Our *Facebook page* provides a social forum for sharing news and photos of your conference activities and awards. Looking forward to reading your posts and comments, Lyn Lyn S. AMINE Communications Officer, WAIB PS. Please feel free to email me with any questions, comments or suggestions. ____ AIB-L is brought to you by the Academy of International Business.
