Fundraising in Action

UBC’s Young Women in Business Organization (YWiB) had a goal of raising $1,000 to sponsor two high school girls.

Founded at UBC by female commerce undergraduate students, YWiB has grown into a leading community of empowerment for women at the University of British Columbia and beyond.

For International Women’s Day in 2020, the group hosted a conference and networking event to help raise money for two students, Yvonne and Carolyn, in Kenya. The event brought together a group of strong female leaders to speak, including a panel to answer questions and provide advice to the students in attendance.

The evening was such a huge success that they surpassed their expectations and raised $2,000!

Because of their ingenuity and entrepreneurship, Yvonne can continue to pursue her goal of being a human rights lawyer and Carolyn is able to work towards being an engineer.

This group of young women are such an inspiration! YWiB continues to grow with 10 chapters across Canada and we can’t wait to see what they’ll achieve next!
