IUB Women Rising

IUB Women Rising

The workforce gender equity gap is multifaceted and real. The equity gap adds up to serious opportunity and economic losses over the course of a career lifetime. Workforce gender equity is an important issue.

Women experience challenges in career development that include:

  • Pay equity gap
  • Discrimination and harassment
  • Gender stereotyping
  • Double standards
  • Opportunity gaps
  • Structural barriers for maintaining work life integration

We think career development can help.

IUBWR is a pilot program of the Career Development Center funded by the IU Foundation’s Women’s Philanthropy Leadership Council and Well House Society.
We promote leadership and career development by serving IUB students with education and practical tools to close the gender equity gap through innovative outreach and advocacy programming.
IUB Women Rising programs are attentive to intersectionality and inclusivity.

What are our goals?

  • Encourage early and ongoing engagement in career development and planning.
  • Build awareness, knowledge and understanding of gender equity gap issues in the workforce.
  • Increase leadership opportunities and advocacy skills for navigating decision-making and the structural barriers in the career world.
