The Graduate Women’s Leadership Organization (GWLO) was formed in the spring of 2004 after more that fifty female Bentley graduate students attended Harvard Business School’s Dynamic Women in Business Conference.
The Conference which hosted Ann M. Fudge, Chairman and CEO of Young & Rubicam Inc. and Y&R Advertising and Ann S. Moore, Chairman and CEO of Time, Inc. was an inspiration to all who attended. A unanimous decision was made then to start a Women’s Organization on Bentley’s campus to foster a continued focus on the development of Graduate women. The organization’s first event was a Dinner & Development on Effective Commincation with Janet Jordan.
The founding members were: Catherine Glynn, Faye Ball, Maria Marco, Elaine Ewing and Irina Serebryanik.
