 Our Motto

~Through camaraderie, professionalism, and elegance, we are invested in our future and success, as well as the future and success of MWLB.


  Our History

~In September 1999, Dr. Suzanne Savary, a Marshall professor of Business Communication, and Sandy Buchan, former Director of Undergraduate Student Services, invited the top female business students to discuss the idea of establishing an organization focused on the development of female business leaders. A lively and enthusiastic discussion ensued, and that was the night MWLB was founded. The Marshall Women's Leadership Board is Marshall's first organization dedicated to female undergraduate business students.
