The 2013 National Association of Women MBAs’ Board of Directors recognized outstanding members and chapters throughout the annual national conference and career fair in Boston in early October. The Nashville Professional Chapter, founded in 2011 by College of Business Administration Director of Career Development Lori LeBleu and initially sponsored by The Massey Graduate School of Business was selected as the Professional Chapter of the Year for the continuous contribution and support of the organization and active engagement on the national and local levels. The chapter’s sold-out women’s leadership conference, “THRIVE” also hosted by The Massey School this summer doubled the chapter’s membership.
The National Association of Women MBAs is a not-for-profit association for women MBAs and business professionals. Through student and professional chapters throughout the United States, the organization is dedicated to empowering female business professionals, to assisting women into leadership positions in business, and to enhancing the diversity of the workforce.
