Association of Women in Finance
The mission of OHIO's Association of Women in Finance is to support and encourage women with interest in working in and/or learning about finance. To promote and support this goal, the group will pair new members with an experienced mentor who has background in finance, similar interests, and real world experience to make their first few years in the College of Business as good as it possibly can be. The group also holds bi-weekly meetings to learn about various topics in finance, hear speakers from the financial world, and help develop necessary skills for applying for internships and jobs such as resume building and interview etiquette.
