La Salle University’s Association of Women MBAs (LAWMBA) was established in 2006, by a group of dedicated and passionate female MBA candidates, who recognized the need for a business oriented platform for professional and personal growth.

LAWMBA, a non-profit organization, is the university subgroup of the National Association of Women MBAs (NAWMBA).

The first LAWMBA meeting/coffee hour kicked off with a great start. The room was filled with women who are currently enrolled in La Salle’s MBA Program as well as those who have recently graudated from La Salle’s MBA Program. They added to the success by generating valuable ideas and contributions to LAWMBA.

The Association held the Inaugural Dinner at The Union League on 23 February 2007, where The President of Acme Markets and part-time MBA student, Judy Spires, delivered a spectacular presentation. Many were in attendance – LAWMBA members, business faculty and staff including Dr. Paul R. Brazina, Interim Dean; and Directors, School of Business.

In order to learn more about networking, on 27 April 2007, LAWMBA conducted a Networking Symposium for all the members of the association. Carole Williams, Director of Inclusion & Staffing, Centecor (J&J); Dr. Anne Walsh, Associate Professor of Healthcare Mgt, La Salle University; and Diane Slifer, Attorney, Blanke Rome, were our esteemed panelists.

LAWMBA has walked its way through and is currently establishing itself even more with many more meetings and events.
