Women in the Academy of International Business (WAIB) is an organization within the Academy of International Business (AIB). Established in November 2001, WAIB is a women's networking group whose goals are to:


  • Encourage networking among women faculty, administrators and PhD students in international business studies by (1) holding a WAIB reception and business meeting at the AIB annual meetings, (2)publishing a newsletter, and (3) hosting an electronic list-serve discussion group


  • Offer one-on-one mentoring, linking female junior faculty and doctoral students with senior women faculty and administrators, as a way to increase the number of women who specialize in international business studies education, research and administration.  

  • Encourage research on gender-related issues in international business.

  • Create an annual tradition of offering one or more WAIB-sponsored panels at the annual international conference.
