Binghamton’s Women in Business (BWiB) was founded by an undergraduate student, Tiffany Choi along with the five other founding members, Victoria Eng, Meng Zhu, Cathleen Wang, Kaitlin Roffe, and Jessica Yee, on April 14, 2011. Having attended a women’s diversity event in her senior year of high school, Choi was encouraged to join a student organization at her university that insprires and strengthens women’s leadership. However, after arriving at Binghamton University, she found that there was a lack of such an organization, motivating Choi, along with her fellow founders, to create Women in Business.
