In support of their mission, CWEL is offering ten (10) full scholarships to the upcoming Women 2.0 Conference to the women of their MBA Fast Track Program located at Babson’s San Francisco campus. The scholarships are being offered as part of CWEL’s “Reverse Commute” program which provides financial support for graduate students to attend conferences in order to build networks and access role models in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

“The Women 2.0 Conference is invaluable to the effort of increasing the number of women in the C-suites at tech companies,” says Susan Duffy, the Executive Director of CWEL. “Providing scholarships to this important conference is just one of the ways the Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership is educating and empowering women technology entrepreneurs.”
