Happy holidays everyone,
For all of you who attended the All-Council meeting last week - thank you! For those of you who could not participate, it was a great opportunity to hear a thorough update on all things Leeds and Women's Council. We will be sending out our handout from the All-Council meeting soon.
Our next event is the 4th Annual Holiday Appreciation Party on December 9th at 6 pm. Join us at Atomic20 (my home base) for drinks, appetizers, and happy winter vibes with the whole Women's Council membership. If you mentor a student, please invite them to mix and mingle with us.
I look forward to seeing you there!
CEO, Atomic 20
Trish Thomas, Women's Council Chair

MBA Women Need Funds for New Entrepreneurship Prize
This year the CU MBA Women in Business Club is creating a Women's Entrepreneurship Prize for the New Venture Challenge. (cunvc.org
) The first event is a mentoring night on Thursday, January 28. Students are appreciative of volunteer mentors at this event. Students secured enough mentors at the Women's council meeting in November.
The final pitch night for the prize will be Tuesday, March 15. Student leaders are still looking for donations towards this prize money. Their overall goal is $3,000 - $5,000. The Women's Council has already committed to help sponsor the prize.
Need Student Volunteer Support?
- Does your company have a designated volunteer day or associated foundation or charity? The MBA program is looking to partner with a local company for one of its volunteer initiatives. Ideally, students would appreciate partnering with a company in January or February. If you could use an additional 5 - 15 volunteers, please contact Kirsten Suddath, VP of Community Relations.
- Student members of Impact Catalyst, a subgroup of Leeds' Net Impact Chapter, will start conducting B-Impact Assessments
(BIAs) with businesses interested in certifying as B-Corporations in January. Each year, students partner with companies who want to assess their social, environmental and financial model. Students also help the company with their assessment and any potential projects that arise from the process.
