Women in Business History

Women in Business History

Women in Business History (WiBH) consists of an informal group who have joined together at Business History Conference meetings for several years. Over lunch, they network, share career information, and trade insights on professional development. Some of the women work in areas related to gender in business and economic history, but the group's scholarly interests span the field.
