The CWEL In-Residence program invites successful women entrepreneurial leaders to share their expertise and experience with Babson students and the broader women’s entrepreneurial leadership community.
These powerful role models help others build self-efficacy as they demonstrate the thinking and action of entrepreneurial leadership. In-Residence collaborations have two parts: a standard set of CWEL-related activities and a customized set of activities based on the interests of the participant. In-Residence experiences are designed to be mutually beneficial to the In-Residence participant and to those with whom she interacts.
In-Residence positions at the CWEL may be in any of the following categories:
- Emerging Entrepreneurial Leader-in-Residence (under age 30)
- Global Entrepreneurial Leader-in-Residence
Standard In-Residence Participation:
- Serve as mentor in Undergraduate or MBA mentor program
- Sit on CWEL Advisory Council
- Engage with CWEL research intern to create a case/blog profile about them for use on the CWEL website and social media outlets
- Write one blog per semester for the CWEL website and social media outlets, OR, deliver one media-based presentation (webinar, recorded class session, recorded panel, etc.). Topic and format determined in collaboration with the CWEL Executive Director.
Customized In-Residence Participation
