PROFILE: JULIANNE CARLIN ’17

“As a CWEL Scholar, I learned to take risks and push myself outside of my comfort zone. CWEL’s support of a student-led company inspired me take the leap of faith to work on the business. The experience turned out to be a defining part of my college experience, and one I talked about during my interviews for my current role at Amazon, as well as the position at Comcast/NBCUniversal that I will hold after Fulbright.” – Julianne Carlin ’17

Julianne Carlin entered Babson College as a CWEL Scholar. The summer after her first year, she traveled to Rwanda for a month as part of the CWEL Scholars program. There, she taught English and entrepreneurship. In her senior year, she became the president of the CWEL Scholars’ Executive Board. This past spring, Julianne was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship and will spend August 2017 to June 2018 in the Czech Republic. 6

PROFILE: COURTNEY WILSON M ’17

“WIN Lab was definitely one of the highlights of my Babson experience. Being part of this year’s WIN cohort reaffirmed for me how unbelievably supportive and committed Babson is to empowering women entrepreneurs. WIN Lab pushed me to be better, not just as an entrepreneur, but as a person.” – Courtney Wilson M’17

Courtney Wilson is a former Army Engineer captain, combat veteran, and Bronze Star Medal recipient. While in Babson’s MBA program, she founded DropZone for Veterans, a website that connects veterans with the multitude of resources available to them. While Courtney was a member of the 2016-2017 WIN Lab cohort, she was named Hubweek’s Changemaker of 2016; included in BostInno’s 10 Startups You Should Know list; took second place at the Beantown Throwdown competition; won first place in the Streets Shares Veterans Small Business Plan Competition, taking home $5,000; and won $17,500 at the Vet to CEO startup competition.

A CWEL SUCCESS STORY: EMILY LEVY ’16 Emily Levy entered Babson College as a CWEL Scholar and was an active and involved member of her cohort of Scholars throughout her college career. In her senior year, Emily was accepted to CWEL’s WIN Lab to accelerate a business she founded named PICCPerfect—a socially innovative company which creates functional and fashionable medical dressings. While part of WIN, Emily took top honors in the third annual Beantown Throwdown competition. Also in her senior year, Emily applied to become a finalist in CWEL’s Babson Breakaway Challenge competition. She competed against 400 other exceptional women entrepreneurs, from all industries, and from all over the country. Emily made it to the final round of judging and ultimately took home the $250,000 prize.

As a result of her Babson Breakaway Challenge win, Emily is now working full time on the business she first imagined while a sophomore at Babson, now named Mighty Well™. The team at CWEL was proud to be with Emily every step of the way!

RESEARCH We support groundbreaking research that focuses on the economic value women entrepreneurial leaders bring to the world. Projects from this past year include academic publications, gender research symposia, and applied research reports. Findings inform our larger CWEL mission of demystifying the complexities of gender and driving gender acumen and thought leadership among today’s business leaders. Research increasingly highlights the innate skills that women bring to business leadership and the important impact that women’s entrepreneurship has on communities and markets around the world. – AMANDA ELAM, CWEL RESEARCH DIRECTOR 13 l

RESEARCH


CWEL launched a study in 2016 with Oxfam America to examine the role of unconscious bias in the debt-financing process for small business owners in Guatemala, paying particular attention to potential barriers encountered by women and indigenous entrepreneurs. The study tested a forward-thinking methodology that could serve as a useful self-assessment tool for financial-lending organizations. Findings from the report completed in 2017 indicated that the participants perceived very little status discrimination in the lending process based on gender or indigenous status. Instead, these small business owners reported discrimination based on business size, barriers to the collateral, and other loan eligibility requirements, as well as unfavorable interest rates that provided little incentive to seek out debt capital.

Building on a 2016 focus group study of women-owned Walmart supplier firms, CWEL launched a comparative study of U.S.-based Walmart supplier firms this year. This follow-on study investigates the extent to which the benefits of the Walmart supplier experience vary across gender, with particular attention to personal leadership, community investment, and business growth. A final report is expected before the end of 2017.

CREATING A GENDER-ENLIGHTENED BUSINESS ECOSYSTEM A SIGNATURE LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR MBA STUDENTS Gender diversity in organizations has been shown to lead to better decision making, higher innovation levels, greater levels of corporate social responsibility, and increased profit margins. For the second year in a row, in partnership with Babson’s F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business, CWEL led a daylong program for the Two-Year MBA students to explore their roles as future entrepreneurs and leaders in creating a Gender Enlightened Business Ecosystem. During the program, students learned the language and terminology used to discuss issues related to gender diversity, and discussed key statistics highlighting important gender equity gaps. Speakers included Andrew Davis, the Chief Diversity Officer for Coca Cola and James Lopata, Executive Coach with innerOvation. At the end of the day, the students engaged in a Design Challenge to imagine and prototype strategies for creating the Gender-Inclusive organizations of the future.

MICHAEL KIMMEL CWEL was proud to sponsor “Sex, Power & Privilege: A Conversation about Leadership with Michael Kimmel.” Michael Kimmel is one of the world’s leading experts on men and masculinities, and a tireless advocate of engaging men to support gender equality.
