Bridging the Gap Between Gender and Leadership: Exploring the Real - Explicit and Implicit - Reasons Behind the Absence of Women on the 2014-2015 MUS Executive Council
McGill Women in Leadership (MWIL), Deautels Women in Business (DWIB), TEDxMontreal Women, the National Women in Business Conference, the Intercollegiate Business Convention.

Congratulations to all of those who participated and supported our 2015 Jeux du Commerce delegation

Inappropriate behaviour, drunkenness, unruly young men and women terrorizing their neighbours, hospitalization, assaults — the tally is not for the faint of heart. We sometimes think of Frosh as we do of winter in Canada: one can only endure it.
