For Kelley senior Caela Reis, nothing shaped her student career at the Kelley School of Business more than Women in Business (WIB). She joined the student organization as a freshman and now oversees five branches and 90 members as president.
“The friendship and mentorship that comes out of Women in Business is amazing,” Reis says. “It’s important to have a supportive group of women on campus. You can go out and do whatever you want and they will support you through it, especially when things aren’t easy.”
Women in Business is dedicated to promoting the success of women within the Kelley School. The club provides its members with exclusive networking opportunities, professional development, social events and support.
Reis is majoring in information systems—a passion sparked by a past WIB president working in technology consulting. Deloitte, where Reis interned last summer, solidified Reis’ interest with an on-campus event for women in technology.
“It was important to me to know that Deloitte was not only a reputable and successful company that would give me a great career opportunity, but also a company that cared about supporting women in technology and connecting with us.”
After her 2016 graduation, Reis will return to Deloitte in Chicago as a full-time business technology analyst. A new WIB president will be elected in the spring.
