Enjoy our 15th anniversary with us! Celebrate your university or institution with the Women in the Academy of International Business! WAIB is pleased to announce sponsorship opportunities.



Sponsorship Opportunities


WAIB is a special interest group within the AIB with the principal mission of raising the profile and visibility of women members of the AIB. In support of this mission, WAIB pursues several important mandates: networking, mentorship, relationship development, financial support, and research encouragement. Having peers who share similar interests and life experiences is a critical advantage that many women scholars have historically lacked, and WAIB’s mission is to address this need. WAIB is a dues-free organization of inclusion and accessibility for women in the AIB, and welcomes all AIB members who share WAIB’s goals and interests. WAIB has a strong presence at the annual AIB meeting, with three WAIB-sponsored panels as well as receptions and networking opportunities where we come together to exchange ideas, research results, personal or group successes, challenges, and exciting plans for the future. These activities give all of us an opportunity to build new relationships and present WAIB awards. Enthusiasm for new projects emerges and co-authoring possibilities are discussed, and junior scholars get to learn from those with many years of research and teaching experience.
