The Women in Business Association is an important initiative because we are supporting and empowering the next generation of female business leaders," said Alexis Applegate, president of CSU's Women in Business Association. "We have a great deal to offer to businesses, and when we work together we can accomplish incredible things." The group is creating opportunities for the female business students to connect with and empower one another to be strong leaders when they step into the professional world through mentorship, seminars, discussions, field trips, workshops and presentations. The programming is focused on helping members discover their strengths. Susan Schell, director of the Career Management Center of the College of Business, is the advisor to the Women in Business Association and emphasizes that there are many opportunities for business leaders and alumni to get involved with and help the new group.
