Women's Circle

Welcome to Columbia Business School’s Women’s Circle. As an expansive women’s leadership initiative, this new era of the Women’s Circle includes all alumnae of Columbia Business School, regardless of giving status or graduation year.

The Women’s Circle promotes and inspires women in business by cultivating an engaged and supportive community across the School. We are dedicated to supporting CBS students and alumnae throughout the many phases of their personal and professional lives and advocating for equity in business leadership. We celebrate the leadership and collective impact of alumnae, and strive to strengthen partnerships between women business leaders and Columbia Business School.
