Young Women's Business Institute 2013

The Calvin Center for Innovation in Business offered a unique learning experience for exceptional young women who are interested in networking, entrepreneurship, and personal growth.

Young Women's Business Institute

The second Calvin Young Women's Business Institute, took place July 17-19, 2013. It is a selective, resume-building program open to young women who are entering their junior or senior year of high school.

Held on the campus of Calvin College, selected students were exposed to state-of-the-art business theories, disciplines, and practices during the 3-day institute. They worked alongside and network with business leaders and innovators, and they had the opportunity to explore their strengths using Donald O. Clifton's StrengthsFinder.

The institute is free to those who attend. Students need only to cover their personal expenses, including the cost of transportation to and from Calvin College. Watch this website for information on the Young Women's Institute for 2014.
