UAWB was launched with a winning start, with around 150 attendees made up of students, representatives from the business community and Business School personnel!

The Launch Even began with UAWB's current President, Keeha, introducing UAWB, how it began, its successes so far and its current and long-term objectives. This served as a notable opportunity for UAWB's new members to learn about the club and the motivating ideas behind its launch.


An absolute highlight of the night was our keynote speaker, Rachel Ah Koy from PwC New Zealand, as well as the inspiring words of Anu Sarin from Sarin Investments. The nuanced insights and wisdom from two leading women in business was no doubt an invaluable experience for all who attended. 


The winner of our DoubleTree by Hilton Wellington giveaway was also announced on the night. Congratulations Olivia! 

The team at UAWB received an abundance of positive feedback from those who attended. Evidently, the Launch Event was a meaningful and successful milestone for UAWB and its stakeholders. Of course, the bar could not have been set so high without the support from the Business School and wider business community. The team at UAWB is especially grateful to Krispy Kreme New Zealand, who kindly provided an abundance of Krispy Kreme doughnuts as part of UAWB's catering for the event. This kind of support from New Zealand businesses strengthens UAWB's ability to provide opportunities such as our Launch Event for students to connect with like-minded individuals and facilitate inspirational keynote speakers! Overall, the Launch Event set the tone for UAWB's events to come and the community culture that it endeavours to build on campus.

"The UAWB Launch Event was inspiring. It was amazing to see students of all ages and genders attending, proving it is a much needed club. As a member of UoA Women in Law, it is great to have a sister club in the business world and we can't wait to see what UAWB do next."

“The UAWB Launch Event was incredible, bringing together like-minded and driven individuals. Environment can play a key role in achievement, which is why having a platform like UAWB will undoubtedly push people out of their comfort zone and brew ingenuity. Looking forward to seeing more phenomenal things from UAWB in the future."
