The Women In Industry (WIN) speaker series is an opportunity for Point Park University undergraduate and graduate business students to hear first-hand experiences from — and network with — leading female professionals in the business world.

By encouraging open and honest conversations, the WIN speaker series allows young aspiring businesswomen and men to hear the triumphs, failures and everything in between from successful business professionals.
