Objective

The objective for The WIB Wire is to 1) provide a platform for WIB members to process experiences critically and thoughtfully and 2) give an opportunity for non-WIB members to have exposure to WIB’s overall purpose.

Mission

The WIB Wire acts as a platform for womxn in the Cal Poly and wider SLO community concerning current events, and issues related to the female experience on a personal, local, national and global scale. The Wire highlights perspectives of womxn in the professional world at all stages of their career and addresses not only the adversity they face, but also celebrates those who are making strides to close the gender gap. This publication is entirely student-driven and aims to provide readers the opportunity to think critically about their own experiences, learn from established womxn in industry, and provoke thoughtful discussion. As an affiliate of the Cal Poly Women in Business Association, the WIB Wire shares experiences about what it means to be young and professional in the modern world, and how those experiences may be different for each and every one of us.

Structure

This is a student-run, member-contributed blog to highlight the perspectives, successes, and achievements by women in business and fellow students. Each member posts once a month, totaling 4 posts per month from the entire team. The type of blog posts can vary and may include, but are not limited to, the following structure types:

  • Student perspectives of times they’ve felt inhibited, empowered or perceptive about their experience at Cal Poly as it pertains to gender.
  • Student written pieces about members of the business community who are striving to close the gender gap and prompt discussion about gender in the workforce.
  • Executive and entrepreneurial profiles of successful women in a variety of industries – an idea of how they got their start.
  • Professor contributions about their own experiences and interviews with members of the Cal Poly and greater SLO community
  • Student opinion pieces about certain current events and people driving diversity in the business world and other industries (politics, entertainment, sports, etc…)
  • Contributions similar to what’s stated above but from faculty.
  • Contributions from advisors or actual industry professionals about the importance of gender equality.
